    Google/YouTube LPG bottle gas forge.

    If you’re handy with an angle grinder and welder (and not a Darwin candidate when recycling the ex LPG bottle) they’re DIY.

    There’s some do’s and don’ts when setting up the LPG fuel supply, but plenty of advice here will see you right

    OK will look into that
    But I'm wanting to be able to get it up to 1300 fahrenheit / 700 celsius and hold it there thermostatically for an hour or two.
    So I do need a fair bit of control that I cant see a forge having ?

    What are you using it for? Hardening carbon steel or what?
