vertical forge question

Hello all,
I have a question about the pipe diameter for a vertical forge.
Even using large diameter pipe like 14?? + 2?? of refractory you are end up with 10'' of inside forge diameter. Is this enough for making an 12?? billet?
Is it okay to have part of the billet outside the forge while drawing out?

Thanks,
Evgeny

Yeah, you're fine. You can work in sections no problems. Mine is 10" with an 8" interior and I work 12" billets all the time.
