Hi!
i hope that you enjoy this forge how to!
<p>Nothing shows up but empty post</p>
<p>I'd recommend a steel tuyere (the tube adding air) if you're melting higher-temperature things. Depending on how hot things are getting you may want to use a graphite crucible. The clay is a nice touch.</p>
Is that a paint can that he has the aluminum I can't figure it out
<p>will charcoal work?</p>
<p>Yes. Most charcoal is made from wood.</p>
How did you keep the embers from blowing out when you applied the air
<p>sadley my knife shattered before i could temper it</p>
<p>good job</p>
I have a question that possibly many people want answered. How do you make a furnace that can melt down steel?

I think you would be better to use refactery clay which is designed to withstand very high temp. all in all a nice job !
This was good, fun and simple. I'm going to try this (with the sand/plaster of paris mix). Thank you for sharing this with us. I appreciate it.
very cool. <br>
Well done. I've been using a similar forge (as you said made out of a propane cylinder) for over 10 years now.
cool. 'nuff said
Wow! This is so cool(sic). <br>I am going to make one of these. <br>I saw Guy Martin make a forge, last year. For his canal boat series. His looked too complicated and yours is just right for the materials I have in my workshop. <br>Going to make some motorcycle parts with that Aluminium melting method! <br>Gives me an idea for a wheelchair-friendly sauna. <br>Well Done Again.
