Joshua States Posted September 26, 2022 Share Posted September 26, 2022 (edited) I spent this weekend finishing up a crucible furnace and a tall vertical HT forge. I tinkered around with that big well bladder forge I started a year ago and decided it was too big and would use way too much gas to get to heat. So I decided to make one out of an old 100 lb. propane bottle. The burner is a 1" pipe venturi style. I fogot to get photos of the cucible furnace while running, but here is a short video to both of them in operation. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kqnBYNjPhePiiYkFv1igL7KwWaOx9wHu/view?usp=sharing I still have about a 200*F differential between the top and bottom of the sword forge that I need to figure out. The crucube furnace has trouble getting above 1220*C and I need to get it to about 1550.

I've been there before.” The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
