  1. I was a prize idiot... I attempted and succeeded in creating a castable refractory liner for the kaowool in the helium tank forge I'm building. I needed to preserve the space inside for the work and in a hurry...I grabbed the first thing I could find. Wait for it... ...a stack of red Solo cups...(yeah, I know). I have read that diesel or gasoline can dissolve them, but I don't want to make another mistake that's WAY more dangerous. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks all!
  2. I found this in Michigan actually...ann arbor area. It is magnetic, and it's a solid slug. The mark made by the cut is not typical. It's about 1/2" wide and 4-5" long. I found a whole collection of them in a plastic bin out for the trash.
  3. Hey everyone! I happened upon a lot of these during my evening scavenging run. Can anyone tell me what they are? Thanks!
  4. Hey all, I couldn't find a good place for this in the general Internet, so I thought I'd share it with you folks first. Craftsman and B&D sold a 20v power tool system with interchangeable attachments (drill, saws, etc.) called BoltOn and Matrix respectively. I've used this ever since I got it, and just used it to help build my forge, but yesterday it broke and I was heartbroken.

  5. Hey all! I just started forging a few days ago and I need some advice before I do something to my forge. It's a single burner propane forge built from a helium tank (think Party City, the ones you can buy) with a kaowool liner. I'm torn between a refractory cement layer on the kaowool, and a steel cylinder about 4-5 inches in diameter. Would this steel inner wall help keep the heat better than the refractory cement? Thanks all!
