Carlos Adiel Martinez Paredes: Nice video! Better soundtrack!
Sondreef: Finally a youtuber with a a taste of music
Edgunsuk: My god that was well thought out, i don't even need one but i would buy it lol i would definitely get wool insulation on the inside of it though it will heat up faster with zero conduction , When you make another burner make sure you save the plans for posterity (me ! ) thanks for sharing , also great music how did you get away with using it ? :-)
Cade Scott: Very impressive to say the least..! Thanks for sharing.
joshmnky: I found some plans for an electric foundry on a site called Dan's Workshop. There were a bunch of websites of people who had built one, so I bought in. I'm going to get started this afternoon buying materials.
The best advice I think is to use firebrick for the inner liner. Refractory is a great insulator, but chips really easily.
Tsuda Otatsuke: Wise move to put the bricks in a furnace (stove) to prevent imperfections. Imperfections can be deadly with something like this.
KITNARAGNAROG: would weld a stop for the lid turning mechanism, otherwise would suck to have a white hot concrete slab slapping you in the thigh.
Cory Adamson: Do you have a link to the specs/plans? I'd really like to replicate for myself
gamo98: why was the music put on for you could not hear what he was saying
HarriMerivirta: Next step sancasting. Would be interested in knowing how you built the burner.
Designsbyg: Although i've not tried it yet, i'm very confident that it would easily melt any non-ferrous metal. When I run it to melt aluminum, i'm only running at about 10% throttle! It was designed with melting bronze, brass and copper in mind. I do intend to melt these in this furnace at some point. It will also melt silver/gold just as easily.
GrayWolfPictures: can this get hot enough to melt copper at almost 2000*F?
SuperDanisama: can I use this to melt silver and gold?
Adam Carmichael: Really nice!
About 3 years have past since you built the furnace, if you were to make a new one today, would you change any parts of the design?
How critical were your dimensions for the burner?
Designsbyg: When I built my furnace, I was fortunate enough to be given information by a local foundry supplier. otherwise, i doubt i would have gotten the results I did. I know nothing about forges. I believe many cement manufacturers produce a line of high temp/refractory grade products. I don't recall which one I used, sorry...
dzljon: is there any chance you would share the cad file for this project? this is one of the best projects i have seen yet.
MrMinimalSWN: Hey, I'm planning on making a double-wall-structure forge, so I can put wood in between the 2 rims for drying the wood (first step charcoal making), I would also use ventilation with a condensator and filter so I don't breath these fumes when I'm working.
Now what I need to know is: 1) If the wall would conduct enough heat for the moisture to evaporate from the wood? 2) what's minimum thickness the wall should be for a save forge? 3) Wich brand is that of the product you're using?
dogdove: any competent woodworker could make those forms with a pattern cut with a jigsaw and router. CNC is just faster and more precise.
dogdove: finally a video not by an idiot
Finn Ward: The foundations of your build are greeat. I especially love the burner
Benivator2: QUEEN!?!?!? XD
Brandon Kehoe: One of the best builds i have seen
Homere Lesperance: That's a awesome craftsmanship of a foundry furnace. This is a very nice build & designed foundry furnace that can be easily assemble and disassemble (interlocks), I absolutely love it! You should put this in the market where professional smelters, metal casters, metal forgers, enthusiasts, hobbyists or anyone, anybody with an interest in melting & casting metals could buy or purchased this very nice, good foundry furnace. Oh, very good song chosen, Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody! :)
Kory Hutchinson: Nice- would this work for a pizza oven?
bryncomeaux: wasn't mr. murcury a born and raised zoroastrian? Both parent were zoroastrians and he had a zoroastrian funeral. it's an ancient religion pre-dates christianity . the basic tenant is that ;we are all caught in an inextricable web of both good and evil all we can do it attempt to balance and channel those forces in a constructive manner. nice people
I have learned that i no longer have to believe a religion to learn from it.
bryncomeaux: that was a joke!
bryncomeaux: thats a cool song who does it?
Duckyistrippin: he was just showing off ;) you could easily make the brick molds out of anything. wood or plastic being the easiest. he just buzzed them out on a cnc because, hell. why not. im sure all that acrylic was just scrap from whatever that shop makes. most people with half a brain that needed a portable furnace would just build it out of k-wool and a steel drum. but hey, if this is what the guy wants why not make it so.
Duckyistrippin: lol that burner looks like a small saturn rocket!
TheDivineImpulse: so i have analysed this furnace 3 or 4 times now and i finally found why it's not perfect : the base its too big and heavy opposed to all the little pieces of the furnace itself and you do not have a hole in it (in the bottom) just in case melted material spills it will be left on the bottom of the furnace until it cools and you can take it apart apart that its perfect
Lildream3: Do you prefer coal or propane? Which would I use to cast gold with? For gold rings, watches etc.
steve enderhunter: i think that you should run the burn time for a day not 2-3 hours... but still great vid. i own a proffessional forge myself and im pretty impressed. LIKE
Mr3wheeledbike: great vid good music LIKE
Bill Msi: i am also in the tool/mold industry,and have use of cnc,and specialise in edm,i am friends with our graphite supplier,and he has let me have all his scrap graphite.instead of refractory cement, i was going to use graphite peices to make a big block and machine the foundry.. what are your thoughts?,also if you dont mind ime totally hitting up the lathe to copy your burner!..great job!..best ive seen..simple..beautiful,and super powerful!
dekonfrost7: the fire ring at the top is held in by the outside bottom and verticle lip the blocks being tight together and probably interlocking on edge keep them from falling in...
dekonfrost7: 7 months late, i ment also to compliment you. i have finally scrathed some time to build mine..35 gallon drum. 4 piece design...i must say that the ability to assemble and reduce size in your design is a tremendous advantage....also the spillway in the bottom being pieced together is a good redundency...my compliments.
Myrkanth: After 2 years, how has the foundry held up? I've been watching DIY foundry videos for almost 2 months but this design has really caught my attention.
onetwothree57: Where can I get refractory cement?
Ryan St. George: It's Autodesk's "autocad"
Bleriot529: Brilliant! "Better Living Through Science!"
TheMechanic2: What program did you use for your CAD drawing?
GregGreg1983: Would you build one for me and if so what would the price tag be for something like this ? I would love to build it but time is money for me and I am all out of time lol . Thanks Greg .
dustin ross: Please tell me, i am trying to understand how to make a lid with six pieces and a metal ring but can't understand how they will stay in form when lifted. I notice you have a grove in your mold...is this filled with rebar or some kind of support? Is that grove the only thing needed for the support of those six lid pieces?
beachcomber2008: That's the way to do it.
- Shut up, Punch.
shades2: Awesome job.
Asylumescapee69: You should sell the molds for a fair price...
