I'll watch this, Dutch, as I have wanted a forge for a long time.

No no no, Dutch! I don't know if I can stand the temptation.

Please start a build thread on this. Just for our entertainment, of course.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

paint is on, 6" of ceramic fiber blanket are in, and now we wait...
I want to coat the inside with a ceramic coating , produced in the States, needs to be payed by card , which I don`t have... lets see if they come up with a solution. Really , how hard can it be to send money from one bank to another

Also waiting for propane pipe and fittings. Should be here by the end of the week.

That'll work! Mine is similar in form. Are you looking for Cerakote? I made home made refractory on mine with a Reil burner.

I`m not familiar with cerakote. I`ve used itc-100ht in previous furnaces I built. I like the stuff but there`s no way to purchase it overhere.
Looking forward to see what temps it will reach. Ideally this size forge should have 2 burners but I had one left, so... I`m using Rex Price`s t-rex for this one.
