DIY Foundry Crucible Furnace




What do you think about this video?

Nathan Kaifesh: Bohemian Rapsody wooo!

bannor216: awesome foundry. the song freaking sucks though.

jamiel joseph: Why do people like to complicate things so much. SMH

Numisaccent: The baddest DIY foundry I have ever seen!

Evipicc: Just regular concrete?

MrsMika: WOW this is so impressive. 

G11B: Not bad. I do have to say that during assembly, it would be beneficial to seal it with refractory mortar. You're losing tons of energy (and gas) without it!
The con here is that it would be a solid structure afterwards instead of something you could disassemble. But you would get higher temps quicker and with less energy if you did. It's a worthwhile trade-off.
I bet you've redesigned since 2010. ;)

Brent Wiseman: Awesome design. Beautiful ingots as well. Though, with all the foundry YouTubeing I've been doing recently, the one thing I didn't know much about was the crucible itself, which is what led me here, but it's also nonexistent in this video. :p I'd be interested in what you used.

Cheyne Simons: nice video

ethan sanders: why the bohemian rhapsody.

Sean: +Designsbyg Are you an engineer? I've always felt like my ambitions are held back by my knowledge. I wish I had that "knack" for problem solving a lot of engineers possess to design things like this on their own. Great project man.

Marius Kraft Bøhmer: Sweet
:-)

74KU: wow now mine looks crap..

jlsoldwood: Would you Cast the concrete pieces ...and sell them to me?

Justin Gould: That's a beautiful piece of work. Superb engineering, and the most beautiful burner I've ever seen.

Sebastian Robledo: how much prolixity, I congratulate Mr.

dayvon cyler: I love this furnace but the thing is, I'm trying to make a furnace you'd be able to make at home, with CHEAP THINGS not fancy shmancy shtuff, but I admire it for being aweseome

Rodney Jackson: I would like to know were I could get the plains for the furnace

4Maestro1: DIY? You fooled me by the professionalism of the design/mnfr of the product, as well as by the quality editing of the video. Great job! Certainly an inspiration to other DIY-ers.
Just wondering though... For those who are not as handy in making things of this nature, do you sell this in a kit, or would you be willing to? And if so, how much would you charge for it? Thx!
