Finished my first gas forge/furnace setup!

Recommended Posts

It's multi purpose. I may even be able to make steel ingots to forge blades from, but we'll see. The primary reason I built it as a furnace and not strictly a forge was to make bronze knife furniture. But there are all sorts of fun things to cast, including a scrap metal lathe eventually 

 

Without further adieu, here's the video

Also, some pictures of the knife in working on.

Casting aluminum and silicon bronze is one thing.  Casting steel something else altogether.  Please do more research, outside of youtube, and try to avoid a Darwin Award.  I have no experience with foundries so can be of no real assistance, but do know the temperatures and atmosphere control involved are very different.
