Plans for a Gas Fired Forge
NOTICE: BUILDING GAS FORGES IS DANGEROUS !!! I DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY! BUILD THIS FORGE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
Check out the links page, there you will find webpages that have detailed picturers on how to build gas forges and more info. Folks please check these sites out! Don't follow just my plans these plans are to give you an idea!
This Forge has been designed for LP use but it can be converted for Natural Gas Use. I use a standered 20# LP tank ( BBQ tank) and it last me about 18 hours burning all the time. Burning pressure is 5 psi for normal working 10 psi for welding. Remeber if you install a pilot light or a push button ignition you can turn the forge off after every heat your metal takes THIS SAVES A LOT OF LP!!
Check out Diagram of my Wisper mama forge , this page has a very good info on how a thermocoupler safty defice works.
I NEVER RECOMMEND USEING A GAS FORGE WITHOUT A THERMOCOUPLER SAFTY DEVICE ALL MY GAS FORGES HAVE THEM!!!
