Forge in action

Matt and I just finished melting down some cans to test out the new forge. Okay so technically that makes it a foundry I guess (says Matt) but the plan is for it to be used as a forge for metal shaping. Here’s the video of how it went. It was pretty cool and a lot of fun for an evening. Now that we know it works we’ll see what else we can do with it. We didn’t have very many cans so there’s not much to show for it, but it was fun.

 

Just updated! Pour number 2 tonight. We used a bunch of scrap aluminum I had kicking around. I’ve got to find me an anvil!
