My old gasforge was getting really bad - All burnt out and quite horrible.
I started out with a horizontal gasforge but wanted a vertical one to try if it does a better job. Here are some pictures of the build.
A 60 litre oildrum and some 2 mm. steelplate will be the main materials.
A lid made of 2 mm. steel plate.
Some pictures of the build
Have bought some Durablanket Z insulation and some Alagun 70 gunning refactory ( this material is rated to 1700 c ) - and is highly flux resistent.
