  1. I got it running today! It took me a good week just to get the blower working adequately. So here is the big question.... What do I do with it? I mean I have the general idea... but any pointers, tips, or suggestions on how to start? and here is a pic. -Gabriel
  2. Hello, I've been very interested in the posts regarding the Aristotle Furnace and the Evenstad Hearth. I have farm with many old buildings and an abundance of rusty metal, the idea of being able to recycle some of this into some useful homemade tools is very compelling. I've been unable to glean an exact design for an Evenstad Hearth, but with adobe costing nothing, I decided to try one based loosely off the pictures of Mark Green's new portable hearth. I had the base of an old chicken feeder lying around so I used that for the base for the adobe and sort of formed it around a stock pot. The mix was wet and it slumped a bit so the bottom of the bowl is about 8 inches with the top around a foot in diameter. The only peice of tubing I could find on the fly was a scrap of galvanized fence tubing, I figured I could use that as a placeholder while the adobe sets up and replace it with a better something tubular for the true tuyere. The floor is a bit over 4 inches from the bottom of this temporary "tuyere" I figured I could fiddle around with that. I am mainly interested in turning some of my scrap into forgeable iron, not necessarily high carbon blade steel at this time. Any thoughts on if I'm on the right track with this one? I have lots of clay and cowshit so I have room to experiment.
