Careful With That Axe Eugene
XS750AU said:I have wanted to have a go at casting some small alloy parts. But to do that I need a furnace to melt the alloy. So after some research on the University of Youtube I started playing with the concept.
IT is working "sort of".
To get it started you need to get some heat into it to start the vaporising process. Oxy works most efficiently at that task After a while it becomes self sustaining. But what I have realised is that the actual combustion is occurring in the furnace rather than the combustion chamber. I think the issue is that the combustion chamber is too small and the flame is being "blown" out into the furnace. So the next design will have a much larger combustion chamber to keep the heat and vaporisation process where it is designed to be.
