I Forge Iron

Oh yeah, I got hot metal!

So, even with pretty crappy fire brick I was able to get it hot and get some metal hot. You can see the hot burner tip through the hole here too. This was after probably 20 minutes running at between 10 and 20 PSI. I did get a few flame outs when I choked down the opening too much and the back pressure built up.

My current thinking it that a chimney is going to be a good idea. Of course this will have to be balanced with the material opening. I'm sure this is more of an art than a science.
