PLASTER OF PARIS FORGE




The other day I thought of using plaster of paris to make a gas forge. I tried it and it worked. All you need is 1 tin can, some plaster of paris and a propane torch. The forge I made can melt brass and that means 2000 degrees F. I just used a torch like my dad uses. If you make it with a can bigger than 6 inches long you will want two torches. It is not foolproof, if you run it too long the plaster will crack and every once and a while you will need to put new plaster on the inside of the firing chamber. Don't push the torch too far into the firing chamber, the tip is made of brass and it might melt.
