Our best forge for bladesmithing! Compared to the forges on eBay/Amazon, it gets hotter, the insulation will last longer, it won’t rust, and it only uses $1 propane per hour! Top that off with a swirling chamber, and we believe it’s the ultimate bladesmithing forge. It’s so well engineered that multiple schools and even ABS Mastersmiths have been known to add them to their shops.
The Atlas forge uses Kastolite 50-25 Plus cast refractory, cured and baked for 4 hours at 450°F. Ready to use right out of the box and it will last much longer than wool based forges.
May include a small bag of Plistix 900F refractory. This can be mixed and painted on the inside chamber to improve efficiency and toughness of the chamber. NOT REQUIRED FOR USE!!!
It’s more than hot enough to forge weld, but you need to use a fluxless method. Borax will damage the refractory.
This multimeter is capable of displaying 0-1999°F and 0-1250°C.
- Stainless steel forge w/ adjustable sliding tool rest
- 0-20 PSI regulator w/hose connects to 20lb. propane tanks
- Atlas stainless steel 30k BTU burner
- 6 oz Plistix 900f (small bag of white powder)
Plistix 900f can be used to improve your forge chamber, but is not required. To apply,
1. Spray the inside of your chamber with a mist of water
2. Mix Plistix 900f with a small amount of water (I use a small blender)
3. Coat the inside of your chamber (I use a spatula or brush)

- Thermocouple can be connected directly to digital thermometers.
- It can measure VERY HIGH temperatures up to 2372 °F(1300°)
- This heavy duty 8 gauge comes in 8.5 inch length.
- The length of this thermocouple is measured by the number of 1 inch long ceramics.
- Some extra length is added for connections.
- You can adjust the length of this thermocouple by bending the probe/thread at installation.
To connect the thermocouple to the multimeter, it is recommended to cut the white temperate probe near the end and wrap the wires around the thermocouple connectors.
If the temperature readout goes down, reverse the wires on the thermocouple. Improper connection can cause temperatures to be off as much as 130°F
