Kenon Rain. Posted July 2, 2019 Share Posted July 2, 2019 (edited) Hey guys, long time since I posted last. I've been working as a fabricator/food grade sheet metal worker for the past 7 years or so and have developed some skills that I want to incorporate into a return to this craft. I'll be building a large shop next year, and will be building a full set of very nice equiptment to outfit it with in the time leading up to that. This is a work in progress thread that should come along pretty quickly. To start with, I'm making an experimental forge for heat treatment, it will be 20" in diameter, top fed and powered by the burner shown below. The video I posted is of a test firing. The ribbon section/plenum is all stainless steel w 15 1/4" jets set at increasing distances of 1/8" so that the bottom two are roughly 1" on center, and the top two are nearly 3". This is to theoretically help compensate for heat rising and collecting at the top of the forge. The black component is mild steel with an integrated slide gate, fuel line, and seperate port for the extra air since my fan is oversized. I figure this will act as a safety feature for settled propane, and help keep the burner cool. This burner will obviously be mounted vertically on the forge body, and with the closer spaced jet end towards the bottom, I will be posting pictures of thr construction of the chamber within the coming week or so. Aiming for ready for lining by the end of next week. Edited July 2, 2019 by Kenon Rain. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
