  2. Scott I disagree with that statement. I melted the bricks where the air was but also on the side walls. I don't believe the back walls melted but there was also a crucible between it. The side walls however did melt closest to the blast but we're not in direct contact with it.
  3. Mark, I actually expected to melt the brick. It was only rated to 2400 ferenheight
  4. Yes the bottom of the furnace was firebrick. I was afraid I would melt the black top with out it. However the reason the cake is lopsided is because I melted the fire brick. And the crucible sunk into it at an angle.
  5. Mark, we used 60 lbs of charcoal. Took about 30 mi to get up to temp and let it cook another hour after that. I also let it cool down for another hour by taking the blower off. it sparked about .85. not sre of the crucible size but the button is 3.5 lbs
  6. Sorry I've been gone so long. Here is one of the projects I've been working on when life has not been in the way. I built the furnace out of soft fire brick. Loaded the crucible with bloomery iron charcoal and glass. Fired it with charcoal and blown air. Brought it up to about 3000 degrees fahrenheit. Pulled the ingot out of the crucible. Broke off the cooled glass polished it and etched it. 6-15-13. attachment=47778:20130618_175250.jpg] [
