I have read both your building instructions. I appreciate the information, it’s really good content. I’ll be running a “Frosty-T” style burner that I’ve already built. I’ve been debating cutting an opening in the back of the bottle. After all the forums I’ve gone through i decided to put one in just in case.

Day 3 progress. Cut the face off. Found my jig saw did a much cleaner job than the angle grinder. Forge is stuffed with 2” ceramic insulation. Welded the face back on. Welded the base on.

I have a frosty T burner that a friend of mine built and I am able to run it all the way down to under 1500°f. This is important when thermalcycling  and quenching. Oh yeah....nice vice!!!

Day 4. Fired up the burner for the first time after adding the air chokes. Not sure if I’ll have much use for them but I wanted to add them in the event that I needed the ability to fine tune the air flow.

The chokes will be handy.  At some point you will probably want to be able to adjust your flame to be neutral or slightly reducing, and you'll be glad you have them :)

I got the burner mount fitted, tapped and welded on, the bolt on legs cut to size and drilled(not shown), and 2 layers of high temp paint sprayed on.  All that I have left is to cover the ceramic insulation. In a few days I’ll be able to fire it up.  I’ll also be adding plate steel on the front and back racks

And it’s partially completed. Still missing the front and rear plates. I’ll add them eventually. Defiantly glade I added those air chokes. The back one is completely shut and the front one is just cracked open.

The forge was running for about 2 minutes prior to this. The wrench is about 1/8” thick. I threw it in there just to see how long it would take to heat up.
