9781879535206: Gas Burners for Forges, Furnaces, and Kilns

"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.

About the Author:

Mike began learning ornamental ironwork at twelve in his father’s shop during the fifeties building boom. Low profit margin and high demand combined to make Southern California a center for technical innovation in trade work. First rate tooling was simply a matter of survival. Over the years his passions for exceptional tooling and for the crafts merged into a unified veiw of art; that vision and tooling are inseperable, for one will not outpace the other. His book is meant to help address the disparity between desire and ability that is holding up progress in the crafts today.

Review:

Michael Porter’s fine illustrations match his excellent writing style. "Gas Burners for Forges, Furnaces, & Kilns" is absolutely the best. -- David W. Wilson, 10 February 2004
