    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.

    Is that a paint can that he has the aluminum I can't figure it out

    Yes. Most charcoal is made from wood.

    How did you keep the embers from blowing out when you applied the air

    sadley my knife shattered before i could temper it

    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.

    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).
    I am going to make one of these.
    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.
    Going to make some motorcycle parts with that Aluminium melting method!
    Gives me an idea for a wheelchair-friendly sauna.
    Well Done Again.
