    Hi!

    Hey all, just found this site and signed up. I live in NW Oregon and am trying my hand at making things out of metal. Eventually I'd like to cast things and make things that are hard to get here anymore. But I've got a long way to go.

    Question on castable refractory

    Hello again, I've had some time to do research on different kinds of refractory material and I really like how the Kast-O-Lite 30Li sounds at first glance. I was wondering if I should coat the Kast-O-Lite in an IR refractory like ITC-100 (a little too pricey for me...) or Meeco's Red Devil 610 refractory cement (well with in my price range but unsure about efficacy). I have attached a ROUGH drawing of the front of the forge. Here is an overall idea of what I'm shooting for: Brushed stainless metal trash can for the shell (H=12" Dia=8") Hoping to do 2" of Kast-O-Lite to make a chamber of about 4" x 11" and have an exhaust port at the rear about 1.5" Hard fire brick as the floor (4.5"x9"x1ish") No refractory on these. Planning on having the burner pipe cast with the material then holding it in place with bolts. What say you fine folks? Any and all wisdom is greatly appreciated. I'm hoping to get this bad boy up to welding temps but we'll see. As always thanks for all the advice. Cheers! Big Jim (p.s. please excuse the horrible drawing in the image... I swear my 6 year old can draw better than me) Oh and I was also thinking of using the lid as a door to make the front opening smaller to retain more heat when I'm trying to weld. Kombae! Big Jim

    Hello

    Hello, my name is Josh. I've been an amateur woodworker for a few years and thought black smithing would be a nice addition. My wife think its because I have all the major woodworking tools, so I found a new hobby to spend money on... Anyways I'm outside Columbus Ohio. I have a pretty nice Peter wright anvil, a homemade forge, a few pairs of tongs and a couple hammers. My dads friend is a pretty awesome blacksmith and he's trying to teach me. I have started to experiment on my own. I have a 12x16 shed to use. I also have a half bag of coal left. I hope to learn a lot from this forum. I am pretty entertained by heating and pounding steel in general right now, but eventually would like to make some larger projects like a pan rack, iron gates for the driveway, and some woodworking/black smithing projects.
