    Easy furnace burner for propane forging

    I have been using a coal forge for along time and decided this week I want to try out using propane. So I sat down and sketched out what I thought would be the easiest burner assembly that wouldn't cost a lot to make and wanted to share it with you all. I came up with this,,, It is constructed of a black iron pipe and went together in about 4 hours once I gathered all my material. First I took a 12" piece of 1" black iron and drilled a 11/16 hole in it for the 3/8 pipe to slide threw. Then I drilled 3-3/8 hole 5/8 of an inch apart. The 4" piece of 3/8 pipe gets a hole dead center with a #57 drill bit. One side of the 4" nipple gets a cap and the other side gets a 90*. The 8" nipple comes out of the 90* and gets a coupling threaded on it then the 3/8 mipx3/8 flare threads into that. This is where your regulator hose threads onto from your propane tank. Last I locked the burner in a vice and made sure the 1" pipe and 3/8" pipe where parallel and welded around the hole where the pipes run threw each other. I am currently waiting on my new furnace to cure and when it does I will be sure to post a video of this burner in action. I will also post a material list below in case anybody is interested in building one of these for themselves. All in all with the regulator I have about $65 in this including the regulator which I will post a link of the exact one I bought from ACE Hardware in the parts list.

    I will be interested to see how this goes as I will need to make one soon. I have seen other styles of burners before but not like this. Looks quite easy to construct.
