Making of a new Forge

I decided I NEEDED a new forge after the heat treating of the some longer blades. With the present forge having a single burner it concentrates the heat within a aprox 6 to 8 inch portion of the 4x2 muffler tube and it takes time to thoroughly heat through both ends so the blades are heated evenly from the tip to the tang. It s reasonably quick with the standard carbon steel blades but the longer stainless blades in the foil wrap need more care to ensure even heating. When I was the city the other week I went to the scrap yard and bought a large gas tank
