Building a new forge!


Recommended Posts

New forge build!! So I made this one using a 7" stove pipe and 1" kaowool with a 4x9 firebrick (not the soft kind). I also did the venturi burner myself which is the only reason I test fired it without properly lining the wool. This weekend I'll be lining the interior of the forge with refractory cement (long live my lungs!), the firebrick will actually be set into the bottom giving my a slightly larger chamber. I'll also be making a stand for it, I will update with more pics when its done!

I like the unconventional forges, but it'll work better without the bricks.  

Dually noted, thanks Alan!
