I made a start on my foundry today to make a new door knocker

The foundry i have made is currently living on the beach out side my back door (lets hope for no freak high tides)

basically its a large pit with a oil barrel filled with charcoal covered with a lid with a small hole about the size of a saucer that leads to a ceramic chimney pot witch is where i will place my melting pot with a set of bellows angled via a pipe to the bottom of the charcoal deposit that can be changed to an air pump if needed.

I test fired it today and it seemed to work fine (well it ate a empty bean can)

so hopefully i can start with the test cast tomorrow.
