View Full Version : New forge build!!

01-23-2014, 10:21 PM
So, almost ready!! Been piecing this together now for a while! I just have to pour the castable refractory liner, and will be ready for a test firing!!

Each burner is capable of 500K BTU!! Only went to 7 pounds pressure, so just 3.5 pounds per burner!! It got really hot in the shop, really fast! LOL!
Sorry for the crappy cell phone video!

I recognize that, it came off of the back of the bat-mobile.

This thing's nuts. Just pop it in the ol' mailbox for me, when you get a chance.... :D

The bat-mobile indeed!! I didn't expect it to be this substantial, but my buddy is a journeyman welder, who works repairing drilling rigs, and equipment, so most of the build came fro his left-overs. The pipe and cap's I salvaged from scrap bins on a pipeline job I surveyed. The burners are also from the oil field. Each keeps a 750 barrel of crude oil hot/liquid in our -40 winters. (A tank is 15'6" wide, and 30' tall)

Tom, I could do that, but the postage would be killer!!

Really looking to seeing the forge get put to use.
Lots of action shots would be fun.
Plus it will help to keep you warm up there in the arctic.
