My crap
beerkeg furnace 
2nd-Aug-2008 05:07 pm


 still on my quest to refine my making process, i've constructed a quick and dirty 'hotbox'

cut beerkeg in 1/3rd / 2/3rd proportions 
 
 weld tubing to base part on slight off centre - to provide swirly cooking pattern. attach chimney - to vent.

line with 'hotface' fibre (1400ºc) to the inside, and another layer of regular fibre as insulation. hold in place with nicrome wire stuff.
 
  i'm ganna melt the dry ingredients in a silica carbide crucible. woot.

i'm planning on using a 2 inch gas burner into the base of this things
 as an aside, here's how i communicate to my colleges at work. this is the floor after a 30 minute 'chat' with Tom Rowney.

hhmmmm.... cave drawings....

When this one burns, you can't take pictures of the inside! I see that as a design flaw.
;P

I have no idea what any of this is about, which makes it all the more mysterious and awesome.

I'm sure Villana & I saw those very drawings in Lascaux...seem to recall that they interpreted it as an early attempt at a better Woolly Mammoth roaster, or some such.

So, where are you sourcing your Woolly Mammoth, these days? ; )
