I Forge Iron

Casting forge

Recommended Posts

I use outer most a layer of aluminum oxide fire brick (home cast) then a lining of reflective 1/16th in. galvanized sheet steel, then rock wool saturated in Satanite.  If I’m melting above 3850F I slip in a cladding of old thick (non-friable) asbestos house siding shingles from the 50’s.  Same forge for 35 years!

You do realize you're posting to a forum with people who actually know what's what? 

So you built a melter that has withstood 3,850 f temps for 35 years? You've been at it that long eh? Funny, I don't think I've ever known a caster who calls a melter a Forge and I've known casters since the mid 1960s. Even done a little.
