5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Paper Back. Perfect Bound.

You can build this high performance electric foundry furnace. Dial up the desired heat on the thermostat, put metal in the crucible, and go ram up molds. After the metal melts, it will sit there at pouring temperature until you're ready.

Not only that, you can use Li'l Bertha to calcine investment molds, carburize and heat treat metal, forge, temper, anneal, enamel, fire ceramics and more.

Dave will show you how to size the furnace to fit your needs, where to get and how to handle crucibles, make the electrical calculations, and more.
