    Torches and Begining of forge

    Here are my torches and the start of my forge.Torches run clean and hot. Still gotta line forge with fire brick and 3/4" ceramic fiber board rated at 2300 degrees. The forge will be mounted on a 2x4 foot table that will raise and lower with an actuator control.

    Are the torches commercial or DIY?

    They are DIY garage nut. Made out of plumbing fittings 1" pipe, reducer, bracket is from scrap metal, the tubing into the pipe is a piece of 1/4" pipe hand threaded so I can run the plate up and down to change the way the oxygen is supplied to the torch. The end is a piece of 2" and the adapter weld to it for 1" pipe it is a tank adapter. Most everything came from McMaster Carr. the reducers were machined out inside to help with oxygen flow instead of have rough threads which does interrupt the flow.
