Joshua States Posted February 13 Share Posted February 13 So a few months ago I built this crucible forge kinda thing. I lit the wood fire in it and let it dry out for a bit. Then I tried running it to see how hot it would get. Then it sat dormant waiting for me to find time and acquire all the necessary materials for a run. This weekend, I went for it, but the results were less than desireable. Here is the setup. The air/gas mixing assembly. I need to change that ball valve out to a gate valve and there aren't any available in the size I need locally. I have to order it. I had a lot of problems with burner blowout and failed to get into the right temperature without excessive fiddling with the air/gas mixture. I only got the furnace above 1500 C for about 6 minutes before running out of gas. I have no idea what's lying below the slag layer. 2 “So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.” The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
