  1. This is a really good video on barrel making.
  2. I was told green persimmons would do that.
  3. I think he didn't believe the one last time part.
  4. Thanks. Since I'm this far I will fire it tomorrow. If it cracks, I will know why. Stand by, I'll have more questions.
  5. IFC, what will that do? Straight out of the ground it feels smooth and just a little gritty. It's like concrete now. Tomorrow I'll see what happens when I put a hot fire on it. You're the pro on clay. I'll be asking you some questions because I'm planning to do more with this clay. After all, I've got about 20 trillion tons of it.
  6. OK, I made a modification. My fire ball didn't have enough depth so I moved my tuyere so it's sticking out about 1 1/2" through the brick. Problem is, it is going to burn. So I've been wanting to try some of this Alabama red clay. I clayed it about a week ago so it's pretty dry now. This stuff is like concrete. Don't know why I didn't try it instead o the cat litter. I'll redo the whole thing soon and I will let you know how it holds up. Anybody ever had a red forge? BTW this added a couple of inches to my fireball.
  7. Good things come to those who wait.
  8. That's what I did. I took forks from a fork lift, cut the uprights, matched the surfaces, clamped them tight and welded them. Mine is 4x4. 4x8 would be great.
  9. Looks good. You can always use it standing on end. What kind of steel is it?
  10. Sorry to hear that. Good luck finding a new spot. Maybe even one under a roof.
  11. I used some of this good ole Alabama red clay the other day. I'm going to get the kitty litter out and reclay my forge with it.
  12. Wow, that's a heckava hair dryer. Keep us up to date on your forge. I'm partial to side blast but curious how this one pans out.
  13. Bluerooster, why do you think you have too much air? lbs, tell your friend she takes good pictures. She should do it more often.
  14. That one is special and would be called whatever the equipment manufacturer wants to call it. Try a thrift store. You may find one cheap and rob parts from it.
