Looks good, but I've noticed a lot of people adding a bell reducer to the end of the tube on these.  There is no need for that.  In an enclosed space like a forge, just mold a slight flare into the refractory lining.  This saves eventually finding a puddle of cast iron on the forge floor.  I do like the stainless tube, though.

You will have having those coke plates on the side help out a lot! A friend of mine over build one of these and it oxidized the heck out of everything before I put the plates on mine.  It helps, also, good job on using the yellow propane rated tape! I have not changed mine out to pipe dope, that's if I ever feel the need for it.

I will be running just the straight pipe in my forge. Thanks for the heads up.
