I would liketo see all the WIP threads moved here. I am working on getting all my parts and plans together. There is a lot out there. Thanks.
Any body put a temp controll on a propane forge?

Archer, check out my website for some pics of my PID controlled propane forge. If I had it to do over again, I'd do the same with the following exception: I'd find a better way to control the forge blower. Maybe a speed controller vs. a dimmer switch. As good as my forge runs, I don't even use the dimmer for the blower. It stays a constant speed and the PID just controlls the solenoid for the hi/low propane stage. The difference isn't much, so your atmosphere stays fairly well regulated.
