Making Electric Aluminum Foundry DIY

  • I decided to make an electric furnace because it's totally silent, I may use it inside my workshop, I also may control temperature and I don't have to worry about lack of gas or wood coal.The furnace works perfectly, after an hour of preheating the temperature is ready to melt aluminium. I didn't test it to maximum temperature because 800 degrees of Celsius is sufficient.An external case is a bit warm but it doesn't pose a problem in using it. I heat workshop in winter so I won't have problem with it :)I am going to use this furnace mostly to cast aluminium, later I am going to use it on lathe.Things I used:REX-C100FK02-V*AN AC 230VTEMPERATURE SENSOR TYPE K 0 ° C .. 800 ° C Fotek SSR-25DA SSR-25 DA Solid State Relay 25A19 Insulating FireBrick J23Some tools I use in my constructions:Self made:Belt grinder 2x48 - https://youtu.be/2rB59KaMjaQVise - https://youtu.be/7BANZRdqFvUDrill press STAND with COOLANT SYSTEM - https://youtu.be/o68uiTp_gWkandWelder IDEAL Tecnomig 200GD LATHE Cormak 330x770Band saw Stiler BS 712RDrill press ZX7016Chop saw Evolution RAGE 3----------------------------------------­­------------------------------------Videos that you may like:https://www.ruhot.net/video/V0ahzDSYDxo/video.html - MOTORIZED Plasma Cutting Trackhttps://www.ruhot.net/video/LTC1qJrGXnM/video.html - Simple Power File DIYhttps://www.ruhot.net/video/f-Ebryi5m0g/video.html - Chain Saw HACK 7 - Drill Attachmenthttps://www.ruhot.net/video/CIU5tcuduCM/video.html - KEYWAY on the LATHE----------------------------------------­­------------------------------------Social media:FB: Made in PolandInsta: made_inpoland----------------------------------------­­------------------------------------Music by YouTube library :ArchetypeArms Dealer LotteryShadowsStill_Standing----------------------------------------­­------------------------------------

    Note for myself from myself: You are not a a scientist nor an engineer while doing toast in the toasting machine.

    Very, very impressive
    You've used some sophisticated machine shop tools but it obvious that basic hand tools, for example a cheap grinder and stick welder, will do the same job albeit slower.
    Your channel is (arguably) one of the top 10 "make-it' channels on YouTube because it features very useful projects, uses re-purposed parts or sheet metal to reduce costs, has clear instructions and is well filmed
    Many thanks for your terrific content!

    11:30 that control box is meant to withstand - atom bombs, emp's fall from 10 kilometers hight, being submerged 10 km under the surface of the sea. impressive.

    when you glue stuff like those blocks, you gotta put it on both blocks then stick the blocks together. glue sticks to glue.

    Be very careful when adding beverage cans to your furnace any remaining liquid will turn to steam and cause a molten metal eruption.

    Your oven is quality workmanship! Before my father died my parents used to run an engineering business , They did non ferrous casting. Aluminium, zinc , bronze\brass and the furnaces looked almost the same, circular with insulation brick walls but on a much larger scale. They didn't use electric just coke(coal), a giant blower fan and a crucible made of silicone, Graphite or steel for Zinc. It was fucking noisy and dirty. So electric is much safer because coal produces loads of unhealthy fumes & carbon monoxide.
