Ironman, here are specific photos of the forge. We are currently running it off of a 20# cylinder. Was filled on Friday, so far has run the forge two hours Monday and Tuesday and today. Company we get our cylinders from is dropping off a 40# cylinder hopefully today.

Here are better photos of the forge itself. Notice a nice front porch for long pieces to lay on, and the back of the forge can be opened by sliding the two firebricks apart for longer material to pass through. It came with the disc blade and stand pipe as well as the hose, regulator and fitting.

Glad the forge is working out for you. I have been covered up in the shop and haven't been on in a while. Thanks for the post.
The forge is made from a 20# propane tank and a single Ron Reil style burner. it has 2" of Ceramic blanket insulation and firebrick for the floor. Very good for teaching and production work.

Glad to see the students getting into it. We had our first 4H class of the year yesterday. we have 14 first year and 35 total this year.They have to be 12 to be in the program. This is my 10th year working with the 4H blacksmithing program.
I've probably learned more than the kids;c)

I have attached a couple of pictures of one of my current projects, a spiral staircase. It pretty much fills the whole front half of the shop.

Once again glad you are happy with the forge!
