Black Dragon MKI Post-Box Forge

MKI Postbox Forge @ R4800
I have been manufacturing and supplying the South African market with my Black Dragon range of forges since October 2009. The really cool part is that 9 years later, i'm still using the very first Postbox forge I ever built! Truth be told, it's not nearly as hot or efficient as the ones we are building these days, but I can live with that - 8 Years of proven reliability is more than I could have hoped for back in 2009. Additionally, I believe it truly embodies the Black Dragon Forge slogan; "PRACTICAL - PERFORMANCE - QUALITY".

I would like to extend a heart felt THANK YOU to each and every Smith who runs our forges. Without your support, none of this would not have been possible.

The MKI Postbox forge features a compact and portable design that can operate from a single 9 kg LP Gas cylinder. The forge chamber is vibratory cast from a high quality, high heat refractory cement rated at 1350 degrees Celsius.

Easy to operate and economical gas consumption.

Package Includes:

1 X Black Dragon MKI Post-box Forge Chamber and Lid
1 X High Pressure (HP) LPG Regulator
1 X 0-250 kPa Pressure Gauge (Fitted to Regulator)
1 X Dragon Burner

LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) appliances that are burning consume oxygen and in enclosed or restricted spaces, will cause the depletion of the oxygen content of the available air. Never leave any forge burning unattended and be ware of the smell of gas - this may indicate a leak. The incorrect installation and use of a forge in buildings can give rise to a variety of hazardous conditions such as a build up of unburned gas, a high concentration of carbon monoxide and the depletion of oxygen for breathing. Ventilation is therefore vitally important and special notice should be given to safety and warnings in the forge operation manual, general notes and this web site. Black Dragon Forge, Evoke Media cc, the forge manufacturers, suppliers and resellers cannot be held liable for any fires, accidents, damage or death that may be caused by the use of these forges.
