I thought I'd post a pic of my redneck forge.

Let me see your credentials please. I don't see any duct tape or baling wire. The corners are at 90 deg angles. And it's not John Deere Green.
Now, I can show you red neck.

The forge isn't very redneck, but that structure that your quench tank is setting on is.

That looks way too good for a redneck project! Be very careful or you will give us "necks" a bad name with good looking work like that!

I see quench-tastrophy in the making!
Get a stable table or platform.....even 'necks have trouble dancing in burning oil.

Not a bad build..no action shots?

Good visual on how to get around the hotspot issue with that type of torch positioning configuration. Lot of these guys needed to see that. Thanks for posting it.
Did you secure your quench? That hot oil will soak into the concrete floor and make a perpetual slick spot. Not to mention the clean up mess as it will go far and wide......How do I know? I read a lot!

I haven't yet, I think I'm going to weld come arms on my forge cart to hold the tank. I've got limited space in my garage because my wife parks in it. Lol!

***How do I know? I read a lot!***
That's kind of an inside joke my buddies use on me all the time at Hammer-ins. All came about when one of my young apprentices asked how I knew how something in particular would not work out. His mom, a very sharp mountain woman, was standing close by and plainly told him "He reads alot." Ever since......

Yeah, better not spill in Momma's garage.
