My first forge build, any tips

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I’m in the process of building a forge, I’m almost to completion is there any tips you guys could offer from the pictures I’ve provided? Thanks for any help! I am starting the Kast-O-lite 30 in the roof today, I’ve got 2 layers of ceramic blanket 1” thick in the roof, roughly 3 layers in the floor, a layer of satanite over everything and then .5”-.75” of KOL in the floor, Once my roof is poured I am coating the whole interior with matrikote 90ac

You might want to resize your pictures to a lot smaller. The reason being we have members world wide who have to depend upun dial up or pay for bandwidth. The easiest way to resize is to double click on the picture when it is posted and a dialog box opens up, most recommended sizes are 500x375. You have a half hour to edit your posts.

I worked ornamental iron for  15 years in my youth; it makes an excellent grouding in shop work and installation.
