Noah Tasker Posted June 11, 2011 Share Posted June 11, 2011 I am wanting to make a new forge. I have used the wool blanket insulation and it has proved too fragile. And also the forge doesn't get hot enough to forge weld which I am dying to try! Anyway, my idea is to make a cast forge but I don't want to have to sell a kidney to have castable refractory shipped to me. I found a recipe online that was used for aluminum casting. It consists of four quarts perlite and one quart of 3000 degree furnace mortar. I planned to buy a small amount of mizzou castable refractory for a liner and to use the homemade stuff for a secondary layer. Any ideas? The ability to make good decisions is the result of eperience, which comes from making bad decisions. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
