Furnace at the makery

I was finally able to get my medium size furnace moved out of the shed, and into the Makery. This was used at my previous residence to melt aluminum with a waste oil burner I built from scratch. I have a feeling that it will eventually be converted to a propane, or propane/oil hybrid burner here at the space.

This is the inlet port that it cast right into the side. It takes a 1.5″ OD pipe and locks it into place with a small bolt tapped into the side.

A nice view of the inside, where there is a small plinth block to keep the crucible off the bottom, and the burner inlet with the venturi tip installed.

It has a chamber about 7.5″ Diameter and 8.5″ depth.
