  1. Thanks for your input guys! I did not actually know that a bit smaller lump would be better, but now I do so I'll definately use that info! Matt, I agree, I need better air control. I am working on that. Any suggestions? :confused: I'm open. One thing I did do though is make the length variable on that grate by using another piece of pipe that blocks the air holes from the one end. In theory, I can use the whole 10 -12" of the fire pot length, or just a few inches. Now on the practical side of that theory, I have found that a bit of debris does get down the holes and sort of bind the st
  2. Well I was finally able to finish my charcoal forge project. Here is a few pics. With my test fire I just let a piece of steel burn right through as you can see in the pics. Welded the fire pot up from 3/8X6 Flat bar. The air is fed in through a 1/8 wall X 1-1/4" pipe with 5/16" holes drilled into it. The top is 1/8" sheet steel with some angle welded on as an edge. The blower in the pics is far too powerfull. The little blob in the last oic is the end of the rod that burned through.
  3. Ian, I hear ya about the $$ being tight these days! But, I was SUPER fortunate - a week or so ago a guy that I know, and runs a small two man machine / fab shop left a message for me saying, 'since he has had no time to get rid of his drops, and right now scrap is worth nothing, I could come by and help myself to his drops!" Mind you some stuff is odd sized, but hey, it's free, and he is very happy that his bins are getting lower! Not sure how the price of scrap metal is doing where you are, but maybe asking a few questions to the right people might just net your daughter a bed frame. BT
