im just starting out and thought i would build a forge. there are a few problems im having and a few options i can change to try and get it working better.
will try and up load photo
the forge is a simple fire brick Assembly with a hole cut out for the stainless burner fitting
[ the hole is a snug fit ]
and the burner is one i made up, very similar and based on people have built on you tube
there is a welding tip inside as a jet [0.8mm]
the problem im having is with the set up .
i can heat steel up but probably not to the right temp. , things seem to cool down quicker once out of the forge then i would have expected, and adjusting the air flow doesn’t give you much difference in the flame picture apart from the first few turns
i can cut out the back to allow more air flow down the burner
change the tip to a smaller one / or larger
the burner pipe is 1" and ends up to a 1" socket, should i put a larger one- say 1"-1/14"
is my forge to small for the burner. ?
and also the regulator i have is a 2 stage acetylene gauge, from v low the flame struggles. and as i turn it up it gets better then latter on at just over 1 bar it starts to cut out
any help would be! grateful as would any help
i live in hull east yourshire if any one is out there. a quick search shows that its a fair drive out to find any one else that seems to be in to the hobby
