After a few weekends of trying to get all the parts I needed, I finally got my new forge built!2thumbs Next came the fun part; trying to light it. A few small explosions and some racing hearts got my dad and I thinking something was wrong with our design. Sure enough. Ray set us straight on the problem and the thing fired up without blowing up, always a plus. Anyways, here's a pic of the new set up http://knifedogs.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=8665&d=1272152613

and of what I got done with it today.http://knifedogs.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=8666&d=1272152613

This hole thing is obviously state of the art, made with space age materials such as a plywood fan adapter. :D It works well though. The fan is variable speed which is nice

Peter, Glad I was able to talk you through the problem! Do you like this forge set up better than you old one?

I like it A LOT better! It runs hotter, heats much more evenly and it's quieter. After I play around with it a bit, I'm thinking of maybe trying some Damascus. Not any time soon. I think it's definitely capable of the temps to do it though.
