Thought id share a few pics of my just completed foundry and propane burner. Made entirely from scrap with the exception obviously of the refractory and crucible. I know its a bit naughty to use gas bottles but since the company that owned it no longer exists and it had sat outside for years with no valve they are unlikely to have wanted it back. Made for an a8 size crucible, no cares given for looks, only function, almost everything was eyeballed, I might need them calibrated.... My 180A mig was struggling a bit with the thicker stuff but with some preheat and big chamfers its plenty strong if not very handsome. Refractory was cast yesterday so going to let it cure for a while before starting to heat cycle it. If I was doing another I would make then lid less deep. FYI there is some rebar welded inside the lid to stop the refractory falling out, and I still need to make a cap of some sort but for now a fire brick will do. Hinge was made from a peice of round stock with a hole drilled through the middle and then split into 3 then welded onto some flat bar, works great. If ive made any huge errors please let me know, open to suggestions on improvements.
