Help with fire concrete/ forge making Answered
Firstly "Hello all", I am a long time lurker, first time poster.
With that out of the way, I am gathering materials to make a small gas forge to cast some bespoke jewelry for my lady wife.
I know there are lots of instructables regarding the process, but all seem to contradict each other in some way.
I am going to use Fire Concrete as the lining as I got 2 tubs super cheap, and the pot says to increase temperature slowly over 4 hours and fix cracks that appear which is simple enough. Guides that use fire concrete just say "when its ready" then fire up the forge, but I dont know how to get it to the ready stage, do I need to fire it slowly over 4 hours or just cure it over night?
And those that use quikrete say to bake the forge for several hours, but as I am using fire concrete do I need to do that or not?
From what I have been reading around I cant do too much to mess it up, but I do need help with understanding how to cure the fire concrete
