Flower Pot Furnace

 

Here is my first furnace. I made it using instructions from Lionel Oliver's book "The Flowerpot Crucible Furnace".

You can read more about it at his site at  http://www.backyardmetalcasting.com/book_fp.html

It is basically a flower pot inside of a popcorn tin. Regular concrete mix fills the space between.

I used a hair dryer to provide forced air and charcoal briquettes for the fuel.

It worked very well, melting a pot of aluminum in about 30 minutes.
