The forge is going to be made from an old air tank about 30"long and 12" I want to use 2 burners it is not going to be a forced burner, I know there are several sites to get the plans and list but actually most have so much info they are confusing to someone new to forging
Thanks Anthony

This is the burner I have used on my forges in the past, makes a great burner for all the damascus I have made over the years.

Got sidetracked building a surface grinder. It appears I cannot grind flat and parallel and stay within a couple thousandths of an inch.

If I remember correctly the jet size is a #52 drill.

I have decided to go ahead and make the forge forced air?

Just finished building a new one for me and tried a new way to run the burner. It makes the gas easy to adjust. Ill get a pic later and post it.\


If you look at the pics you can see how it works, 1.5 square tubing with a hole for the 1/8" black pipe. Lets it slide in or out to adjust on the fly and the air is adjustable on the damper.

I like the way this guy mounted the forge to this metal table. if I didnt have a lot of the parts already I would probably just buy this one. http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/tls/1979500838.html

I built my burner from plans from zoeller forge.
it works great and he has a simple plans/parts list to follow.
