    Default KEG Foundry Furnace biuld

    I started this KEG Foundry Furnace project a few years ago and now have some time to finish it off . I had two old beer kegs lying around so why not put them to use. Been researching DIY Foundry Furnaces and came across the (myfordboy) web site, So will be building a oil burner like he has built.

    Poured in the refractory cement into the lid and the bottom of the keg, will line the side of the keg with fire bricks.

    Been planning to build a keg-based furnace myself, so watching with interest.
    Where did you get your refractory materials from?

    Got some work done on the supply station, i had to make a stronger base as 60 litters of oil and 25 litters in the top tank was to heavy and with those small caster wheels the hole thing could tip over. I hack a PC power supply for the 12 volt oil pump witch will top up the top tank,don't want to run out of oil when doing a melting season. I'm using 135 micron mesh for filtering WASTE VEGETABLE OIL.
