Since there are no pictures or even a description of what type of burner you built, this is the best advice I can give you at this point:

You'll need to participate in the forum for a while before the system will allow you to post pictures. Its a security thing to avoid spammers ...

Clamp your torch in a vise pointing in a safe direction, set flare in place, pressure feed low, then light her up. You should get a nice forceful cone shape blue flame - See pic CC posted on other thread here - excellent example of what you should be getting.
If not you need to start adjusting things - ONE AT A TIME - start with available air
Torch should perform like a mini jet engine. tweak until you get there, then reinsert into forge and fine tune.
