This forge is an excellent choice for the serious competitor in forging competitions or for blacksmith work. The burners are set closer together than the Magnum to concentrate the heat. The venturies are angled back to reduce space needed in a shoer's truck. The Quantum has an electronic igniter and non-asbestos liner with durable reflective one-piece bottom brick. Welding does not require pressure adjustment and forge reaches welding heat quickly. The Quantum burns approximately 1-1/2 pounds of fuel per hour and does not have dual burner controls. The stainless steel back door allows bar stock to be heated in the center.
