Mustad Saddleworld stock a selection of gas forges, which typically uses propane or natural gas as the fuel. The burner mixes fuel and air which are ignited at the tip, which protrudes a short way into the chamber lining. The primary advantage of using a gas forge is the ease of use. A gas forge is simple to operate compared to coal forges, and the fire produced is clean and consistent. A common misconception is that gas forges cannot produce enough heat to enable forge-welding, but a well designed gas forge is hot enough for any farriers task.
