    That is cool. Also check out a book called “Charcoal Foundry” Guy tells you how to make a foundry in a similar way using a 5 gallon metal bucket, pipe for intake and hair dryer for blower. Fires it with charcoal brickets. He melts and pours aluminum, lead or lead alloys, tin or tin alloys, brass and bronze with it.

    While you are looking into all that check out the electric furnace vids on youtube and research induction furnaces.



    hmm this is how it was made



    Lindsay Publications ( they are online) sells vary cheap DIY manuals on just about everything, including forges furnaces and foundries, using induction, coke, gas and coal
    i reccomend them very much for anyone wanting to learn this kind of stuff
