This post is part of a series on making and using the Gingery Foundry.
I’ve made several posts so far about putting together a Gingery foundry setup: flasks, molding sand, and air blast control. The next thing I needed to have a working foundry was the actual foundry furnace.
The furnace is contained in a 5 gallon steel bucket. Two 8” plywood disks were cut out, and wrapped in sheet metal to create a form for the interior of the furnace. I drilled a couple holes in the bucket for drainage and tuere outlets.
