  • home heat treating furnace

    Does any one know the whereabouts of plans for a homemade electric heat treating oven? I know I saw it some where, but can't find it for the life of me. Sounds like a Lindsay or Gingery kind of thing. May have been during one of my link-following surfing sessions. Any ways, if you know, please let us know. Thanks in advance,

        For anyone who decides to cheat and actually BUY one, take a look at the Neycraft Fiber Furnace. Brownell's sells it for about $650, but I've seen it cheaper.

          Am building one of the Gingery furnaces. About half done.(like lots of my projects)
          Pyramid Products in Niland CA has gas-fired furnaces and supplies at reasonable prices. I bought my castable refractory and petro casting sand from them. A small company, honest, and nice to deal with. Thanks--Mike.
