Ryan Thomas: Wow man! .. Never seen propane get so hot. I'm building a Forge out of a old side fed fireplace and I want it as hot as possible. I was going to just buy a big ass propane torch that most people use. after seeing this suddenly I find myself staring at my blower fan... I'm totally doing this! The port in the top of the fireplace is 4" but I'll just do exactly what you did. This fp is like 2ft deep from the side so I need tons of heat. Ty for the video!
Christopher Hamilton: Hey man, if you wanna preserve your ceramic cloth, you should look into layering it with some satanite, ITC-100, or Aluminum Oxide based concrete. That will prevent it from melting as it did in the video.
Korey Gridley: Great Video, i love the forge design
David Jensen: Melting ceramic fiber...can't tell you how much I like that!
Espresso Emperor: how did you remove the propane burner head off your harbor freight torch?
sneakystaffie: G'day Mark, nice work champ, thats mighty powerful. Hoping you would tell me if the 1 1/4" pipe runs right through the 2 1/2 " pipe or is the 2 1/2 " pipe hollow ? I'm hoping to use your set up to power my foundry furnace. Many thanks :)
Lucky B: evin knows his crap when it comes to them gas forges for sure . that is a killer M F er .. so how do you like it .....
RocketCityGardener: Is the tube your feeding propane with one of those weed burner things?
pavolpi: interesting. good idea.
EastCompassoKnivery: Are you the Lowry as in Lowry blades?
Beware the Beast: Hot dogs...need hot dogs..he..he. Great idea man,cool......!
desert1cop: line it with ceramic brick
O.T. Powell: Doesn't forced air cause an oxidizing flame which increases scale build up? Perhaps it doesn't matter if you are forging stuff but for Heat Treating, I don't think you would want forced air.
terran698: a F254AP-1-2 fan from fantec (254x89mm moves 600cfm plugs into wall with 2 prong cord) would do much better than a hair dryer and would completely eliminate slow airflow problems... just watch your fingers around it
Lucky B: do a up date non your forge could you im interested in seeing your changes . our still working it will be seeing the changes , yeah that forge needs some Kast o lite 20 about an inch on that Kawool
JohnnyForehead: Like the comment below says, if you want some life out of your wool then coat it with ITC-100. This also reflects the infrared spectrum for quicker/higher heat, faster forges and fuel savings.
timcat100: 1809 they put a horse shoe on a horse.
1969 they landed on the moon there a bouts.
2013 a hair dryer was used in smelting stuff.
Hair drying has come a long way eh!
clancy6969: You need some denser ceramic coating for covering the ceramic cloth, try
Lucky B: that ceramic blanket is only 2300 or 2400 degree's if that2600 damn that's over kill
only thing id worry about maybe is that chamber you made when you put the bottom nipple on you made a gas chamber , damn good producer of heat though how long does it take to heat a stacked billet ?
Tony Schmidt: how much did it cost you to get that forged fab'd?
