Re: Newbie Questions
- go to the library and see if they have the 'Dave Gingery' books if not then buy the couple intended to show you how to build a crucible furnace. One is a lift body just as you describe wanting. (cost under $20.00)
This should get you to his web site> Gingery books.com

I have most of the steel sheet metal and steel for making a furnace from scratch. I will probably want a swing away lid and run it on propane. It should have enough room for 4 to 6 pounds of aluminum and be portable on wheels.
