October 29, 2008: The forge above is basically the same as the
first firebrick forge that I built except this one has a layer of 3/4"
3000°F 42% Alumina Firebricks on the bottom. This forge
has a more durable floor that can also be used for forge welding.
I put the two interior floor bricks together using Derby 3000 °F Mortar.
This will keep the flux from running down in between the bricks.
November 08, 2008: The forge body above is the next forge that I
am starting to build. The forge body was built using (9) 2 1/2"
insulating firebricks and (3) 3/4"
3000°F 42% Alumina firebricks for the forge floor. The
three bricks that make up the roof of the forge were put together using
Derby 3000 °F Mortar.
The three 2 1/2" bricks and the three 3/4" firebricks were also put
together using the mortar to make the base of the forge. The
inside dimensions of the forge are 9" x 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" giving you 263
cubic inches of interior space. Please send your
