Gas forges are becoming more and more popular in the Australian Blacksmithing and bladesmithing community. Gas Forge Burners and Components are clean and no fuss, heat up quickly and have excellent control of temperature almost eliminating burnt jobs.
These burners are designed to function in a forge of a certain design, cylindrical shape, ceramic fibre insulation and open at both ends. Deviating from this design will result in a deviation in function and performance.
It is important to note that the rules and laws on gas forges vary from state to state and it is normally mandatory that your forge comply and be approved to your state authorities requirements. Make sure you contact your local specialist gasfitter and authority to ensure your design complies with all local requirements.
Gameco-Artisan Supplies sells burner kits of some of the more common designs. The equipment is manufactured to, and complies with all relevant standards however you need to ensure the appliance you build complies in your state for your application.
All gas forges should only ever be used in a well ventilated space. Check all connections for leaks using soapy water note that all goods are sold in accordance with Gameco’s Terms and conditions of sale and product warnings as can be found here: http://gameco.com.au/index.php/terms-of-sale/
What size gas cylinder would be suitable to build this forge from? This kit is made for forges with dimensions the size of a 9kg gas cylinder. The dimensions of the materials are listed on the product page. I suggest you determine the size of forge you need to accomplish the job and then assess if the dimensions presented here will cover the required surface area. A recycled professionally cleaned and de-valved, or new, never used 9 kg LP Gas cylinder should prove adequate.
