I was never that, but a little insanity is great for the creative soul. Or vice versa... ;)

I've really missed working on this project and I hope that soon others will be able to make use of it! I just wanted to post a couple updates here.

I've got it hooked up to a decent chiller now. No more pond pump and the 5-gallon bucket with a small computer fan radiator. Although that worked quite well.


I also set the whole thing up on a rolling metal cart from Sam's Club. This was perfect, lots of room on the bottom for the chiller, a small area for spare coils and a shallow top for the induction heater to sit.


I'm now working on the firmware.

Another video, this one goes over the basic functionality of the machine. Not how to use it but more how it works on a high-level. I'll be making videos of each component/system and how they specifically work individually, this is more a walkthrough of how they all work together. (And don't worry, I'll get a microphone before making those videos.)

Have a great weekend everyone!

I’ve been away but came back looking for this thread. So happy it’s coming out well. I have gotten my induction forge back up and going and have been really enjoying it. 

Super cool that you’ve been successful.
