    I like those as a prebuilt solution. It's just the price. With a little effort, you can make your own for less than half of that.

    I have one of their knifemaker models, I bought it second hand. I would not recommend it for heat treating, the burners create two hot spots that are a pain to deal with. I'm trying to build a round forge now so I can have a more uniform heat

    okay thats good to know, I guess I won't be picking up one of those. yah I know you can build one, but I don't have the time to source all the parts and cut and blah blah blah, i'd rather just get in to doing what i want to be doing. I guess I should check out the chile ones from the states.

    My little pro forge has some hot spots too. But I get around it by moving my work in and out while I'm heat treating. If I leave it in I get the hot spots. But when I'm constantly pulling it in and out of the forge I can even out the heating alot better. Not perfect but it seems to be working for far.
