my mini forge (warning 4 dial-up)

Unread postAuthor: homedepotpro » Thu Nov 01, 2007 8:43 pm

this is my mini forge. It is still in the developmental phases but i'm definitely liking it. Judging by how fast this thing heats up the metal id have to say it's some where in the 2000*F It runs of propane and i have a mattress inflater pumping in air and it is quite loud. The container totally got totaled but i didn't expect it to last. I'm hoping to make some vortex blocks or other stuff. I'm am currently using a 2'' galv. cap as a crucible but im looking for a better one.
