Sometimes It's Not What You Have . . . But What You  Don't Have That Makes For Quality And Performance

My barrel for the outer shell is is 17" high x 14" dia. I cut the top " off the barrel for the lid. The shell is filled with " of insulation and an additional 1/2" of hot face for 3" total. I filled the floor a little deeper- " of insulation and 1/2" hot face. This left an inside cavity of " high X 8"dia. There is a " hole in the top to let the exhaust out and to access the crucible for feeding it metal.

The furnace we built is a small helium tank furnace, capable of melting 30 lbs of bronze in about 40 minutes. This is exactly the same furnace I use in my own studio.
