Line 1: Line 1:
-====== DIY Propane Forge Furnace ====== 
- 
-The electrical units from China break after a few uses and reports of circuit breaking at some temperature meaning it requires 3 phase or higher amps so graduate to propane. At the very least a handheld blow torch on a crucible will eventually melt some metal, insulating the heat produces higher temperatures. The propane blow torch needs to be housed. 
- 
-The silica firebricks that line steel-making furnaces are used at temperatures up to 1,649 °C, which would melt many other types of ceramic. Brittle bricks can crack but will generally last. Not moldable to shape. K26 - 2600°F (1427°C) 
- 
-Kaowool forge liner blanket. A ceramic fibre material used in the lining of forges and other high temperature applications. Suitable for continuous temperatures of 1260 °C.  
- 
-Refractory cement temperature rating is 1640 °C, with Satanite claiming 1760 °C cracks and recoat to repair. Advantage is mould to shape. 
- 
-There are two major designs, the repurposed propane tank with refractory cement or the hexagon steel braced firebrick design. 
- 
-The propane regulator are easily sourced under the keyword blowtorch, with all fitting, simply mount it with the nozzle in the heating area.  
- 
-Put the burner on an angle so it creates rotation around the vacant area between the crucible and wall of furnace as opposed to directly on the crucible. 
- 
-Use a cross shape for a stand for the gas bottle. 
- 
-Use refractory cement.
