My Ribbon burner Forge

Recommended Posts

This is the 3rd time of firing up the forge making sure all castable is cured, would it be beneficial to apply Satanite the walls ? I know I don't want to cover the floor with it sense it is easily damaged by flux.  I still have not applied kiln wash either. I have noticed very little Dragons breath so far but I have not opened the needle valve more than 3 full turns.

On the safety side of things: I installed a 3/8  electromagnetic gas valve and a an air proof switch for safety should we loos power or the fan motor fail the gas will cut off. 

I have no tongs to yet to reach in to the forge, this will be my first project, to forge out my tools. hopefully 3/8 re-bar will work for this, pleas correct me if I wrong, If I'm wrong, I also have 7/16 spring steel. also still search for that "Anvil" 

I would love to here you suggestions and recommendations

If you've lined it with castable you don't need anything on top, unless you want to add an IR reflective coating like ITC-100 or Plistix.  These can get you an extra hundred degrees or so, but are not usually necessary.
