forge burner problems...

I've posted this elsewhere but I'm having problems getting a really hot flame from my home made burners:

So I've built, redone several forges but in resurrecting this one, I find that the burners don't burn evenly. I've tried/looked at any possibility here and can't see what I'm missing. Here's a little vid of a test firing and of course, without back pressure it's hard to see how they will work in the forge but I didn't have time this morning. everything is the same on both sides, and the pipe fittings/migs tips free from any restrictions. Still they don't burn/fire evenly! And, I'm wondering if I can get weld heat from these two or, if I'll need to go back to a three burner setup.

Lastly I "might" be better off w/ a second forge just for welding up billets, I found this old thread of Don fogg's vertical forge but can't tell/see how big it is, or how the gas is injected into the (what looks like) 2" pipe leading into the furnace. So what do I need to generate to weld? 2100o?

And while I'm at it, my pyrometer has gone on the fritz, is this a good one to consider?

thanks for any help, mitch
