I Forge Iron

A forge base idea?


Recommended Posts

Well, I'm making a tire forge and am pretty close to finishing it. I used black 1 inch piping for the tuyere with a T adaptor to allow for air blasting and ash resevoir w/ plug for easy clean out. an air matress fan is my air source and would connect nicely to the inch diameter. Inside the Tire Rim is a mixture of clay and kitty litter the fire pot is an old brake rotor. I'm thinking I would like to place the set up on top of cyderblocks in a squared U shape while digging out a pit underneath where my tuyere would protrude and pileling dirt around the cyderblocks. The set up would look like this... Ooo = Dirt N= cyderblocks I was wondering would the cyderblock blow from the heat if they held up the tire rim?
NN /////NNNN O
NN ////NNNNooO
NN /////NNNNooooO

I hope this works!
