ok, i have watched a zillion videos of people using forges to bend, and manipulate metal. say i have horshoes and want to twist and bend them, would a forge be cheaper than a tank setup? imo a torch setup may be cheaper because i can turn the torch gas off when not being used, as a forge would run most of the day of propane i guess....can anyone clear this up for me?
I have a bypass valve on my forge so when your not needing it you just turn a gas shutoff valve off and the gas goes through a needle valve around the shutoff at 1 psi so it keeps the forge going but uses almost no gas. A propane forge is much cheaper to run as opposed to O/A.
