Iron Melting Cupola Furnaces by Steve Chastain: For The Small Foundry
This book provides plans and operating instructions for building a 10-inch diameter cupola that will melt 330 pounds of iron per hour when powered by a shop vac! Also included are plans for a high-pressure blower that will increase the output of the small furnace to 660 pounds per hour. All can be built from scrap at little cost. Readers have cast sculpture, made castings and restored machines.
"Here at last is a cupola book that shows YOU how to do it."
