    I have one of the big atlas burners if you want it. I don’t know what size forge your going for though he claims that this one will do about 300 to 350 cubic inches. It’s yours if you want it.

    I have cut up several air compressors. All of them have had pretty thick walls. That being said once it’s insulated you don’t need a thick shell at all. If properly insulated the shell will only get slightly warm. Generally I’m still able to lay my hand on it after forging.

    So I need a camera!!

    Kinda off topic but funny. Maybe 10 years ago maybe a little less I was real big into photography (I was a Nikon guy myself.) and had what I would consider a decent eye for photography and one morning I woke up and a simply didn’t have an eye for photography. Now I suck at taking pictures.

    @Ty Adams I’m going to have to try a handle shape like that sometime. I’ve never owned one with that type shaped handle and from looking at that style I always thought it would be uncomfortable but I’ve seen a lot of makers do them like that.

    @Kevin Zito that looks great! I really like how you drew the line under the knife so you could keep the handle from dropping past the cutting edge. Hadn’t thought of that. I’m going to take all the advice I’ve gotten and redesign the blade with the advice I’ve gotten not happy with my design...

    Thanks to you and @J. Doyle! I appreciate the teaching gentleman more than you know. Ps. I know the handle still doesn’t look right I’m going to tinker with that on the blank.

    Is this blade shape any better? Still not quite where I want it but I’m going to have to make a blank and get it in hand. I’m just not feeling it on paper. Dimensions are the same except I narrowed the width on the blade to about 1”
