It's been quite some time since I had an opportunity to work on my propane forge. Well over Christmas vacation I made some progress. I've ordered and received the necessary Kaowool and ITC-100 and I have a propane burner that just needs a small amount of work. If the warm weather continues I plan on finishing the burner this weekend and commencing the insulation installation since I need a working burner to cure the forge.
I've often said that the fun part of blacksmithing is in building the tools to do the smithing rather than in smithing itself.
Please ignore the mess that is my garage.
