More Info


The forge has a single phase whisper quiet integral fan to provide the air supply and takes only 15 minutes to reach working temperature. It can reach a temperature of 1,500°C. It has a 340mm diameter working area and can work up to 50mm steel bar. The ceramic chip technology minimises surface scale formation.

The brazing hearth has an area of 0.23 square metres with a heavy duty refractory base. The RF80 brazing torch, which delivers up to 80,000BTU of heat output, can be replaced by a Flamefast RF10 jewellery torch for fine work. All Flamefast RF torches have a single hand-wheel control to give ease of flame control and a constant flame pattern over the range of flame sizes. The torches are ignited electronically.

All sequences of operation are visually displayed using neon indicators. On start-up, the gas train, hoses and torches are tested for escaping gas. Leaks from any component will result in a continuously illuminated red neon and the main flow of gas will be prevented from entering the system.

As with all Flamefast equipment, the DS430S Chip Forge/Single Brazing Hearth is covered by the Flamefast unconditional
2-year warranty.
