  • One of my other hobbies.

    One of my other hobbies.

    A gas forge, I can just hear all the girls screaming hysterically and running for cover.
    The burner is an idea off the internet and employs a MIG tip for the jet.

    Dont try this unless you are a trained idiot...., like myself.

    Well, well, well another iron banger in the crowd So your using a venturi type burner. Propane or natural gas. I don't have any photos of mine. My burner set up is a bit different. I use a furnace blower inject the propane in a black iron pipe line which goes in to the forge. Sice is 1" Have two like this in a forge about 30" deep. And oh yeah it gets HOT!!!

            I probably am not worthy to join this thread, but I read this article several years ago in PM.
            Home Made Forge.
            I have wanted to try this ever since. Not the kitchen sink mind you but using the shopvac as a bellows. I've been thinking lately that it would be great to make tools for the oven.

              Im using propane, the forge got to over 1000c the other day and maxed out my infared thermometer so I have no idea how hot it gets.
