Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Making the Coils
I use a electric drill with a steel rod to make the coils. two coils of 900w each
Step 2: Making the Steel Case.
In order to have the maximun eficiency, i designed a long crucible steel for high surface too heat.
Some exterior parts like the bottom and the top are made form aluminium sheet
Step 3: Insulation
ceramic whool. take care when manipulating ceramic whool. its like fiberglass
Step 4: Finished and First Test.
It works pretty well, i get so hot that melt the bottom of the steel crucible, i should buy a graphite crusible and try to melt steel in there.
thanks for watching
