    Well as promised, here's pics of my new and improved set up. I like it a lot more. I have more control, especially on the low temperature end I'm noticing. I also get more atmosphere control which is nice. I used it to heat treat a blade the other day and got noticeably less decarb than I used to. Not sure why the image is rotated... Guess you can use it for neck stretches. : )

    Peter, you built everything upside down........

    Is the forge running right now after it heats up?

    I find that building it upside down reduces the weight of my knives since it adds an antigravity property from the inverted heating cycles. : )

    It seems to be running great now! I had it running for about two hours the other day and it ran smoothly the whole time.
