My dreams of axe-making are coming closer to fruition… Well, sort of. I’m still not sure I can forge metal in my apartment without anyone noticing.
Still, though, there’s a really cool project on Hack a Day for building a small induction heater so you can do away with pesky charcoal.
If you’ve ever wanted to forge, cast, or smelt metal, this project is right up your alley. It’s a 30 kVA induction heater built by [bwang] over on Instructables. It gets hot enough to melt and forge steel, iron, and aluminum.
