  1. Hello everyone, I've read through a lot of the beginner stuff and haven't seen this covered yet. I'm working on the "Weber grill forge" thing for my first forge and I was going to buy refractory, but then thought, "Hey, I work in a foundry. If the green sand can survive liquid iron, it should survive steel heating temperatures ok." The sand is bentonite bonded silica sand (with some extras) that I could obtain for free. I planned to wet it and slap it into the grill to keep it from burning through. Forge details: I plan on feeding it through the bottom of the grill with a hair dryer and a shopvac hose I am thinking I could create a regulator for. Thoughts?
