Gas Burners For Forges; Furnaces; And Kilns Michael Porter

S&H $5.00

Gas Burners for Forges; Furnaces; & Kilns is a do-it-yourselfers dream book; showing beginners how to make highly efficient gas burners inexpensively. These burners use simple gas accelerators as their central operating principle. All that is needed is a $2 MIG tip and some plumbing parts. This eliminates the need for a blower to supply combustion air; allowing the burners to be built in any size. Burners are featured; which are small enough to be used for a jewelry torch or large enough to heat any ceramic kiln. Because these burners are both powerful and portable; they can be combined with low cost space age insulating materials and common containers to build light compact heating equipment. Also described is a blacksmith's forge that can be carried anywhere and stored under a workbench; a portable metal melting furnace; a portable farrier's forge; a portable glass furnace/glory hole; and a mobile hot-work station that aids in combining several crafts. The burners and equipment provide an inexpensive way to get started in blacksmithing; foundry work; ceramics; or glasswork. General information and specific designs are given; enabling the craftsperson to build equipment tailored to their own desires.
