Build an Oil Fired Tilting Furnace
This books contains complete plans, design criteria and operating instructions for an oil-fired crucible furnace that easily melts 100 lbs of aluminium an hour. It can also be fired with propane, diesel fuel or used motor oil. And thanks to the tilting mechanism, you will never have to handle a hot crucible again; this really is a very nifty design.
Whilst Steve Chastain designed the furnace to melt aluminium, I can’t see any reason why it won’t melt cast iron if the burner is modified, and possibly the tilting mechanism beefed up. Certainly the basis of all the calculations needed to do this are included here - this is comprehensive information! 192 pages full of drawings, photos, charts etc. Paperback. Published by the author.
