    Please research metal fume fever, or zinc toxicity before promoting the use of a galvanized can to make a foundry.

    You are going to get somebody killed through a very painful death.

          Nice video guys. And thank you for doing them, though he's not with you anymore. Love.

          Could you put the items list in the commentary also? Cheers :)

                You need a set of carbide tipped hole saws friend. They will make a world or difference

                      Do you have a complete cost sheet for all the materials used in this project? If so it would be greatly appreciated!

                          This one seems harder to make, could this version be done with coals instead of propane?

                                      Pro tip: If you put a piece of wood behind sheet metal, you'll get stability and a better cut (if it's flush to the metal).

                                              Small suggestion to any one making this, first make the hole and use a plastic pipe wrapped in foil or something then do as normal , once everything is set just pull out the pipe .

                                                Im not trying to tell you how do do this properly but it would be better if you pack the wet refractory into place like they do when re-ling pre heater furnaces on our local steel works. This will not only make sure you get less air pockets in the refractory lining but it also make the steel bucket foundry last a lot longer. Also it would of been a lot easier for you if you had drilled the holes in the bucket with the metal hole saw then punch drilled the brick and refractory out with a smaller masonry bit which might take a bit longer but the holes through to the inside will be a better fit for the burners. Doing it this way will also mean you use less propane and get it up to heat a lot quicker.

                                                    How well would this work with the hairdryer - charcoal strategy? Cant really afford lots of propane.

                                                          do you need to use propane or can you just blow air with a hair dryer of something?

                                                            Those two have no idea what are they doing. No instruments, making the cement mixture in the kitchen with face masks :D, no single trowel or spatula, adding cement on hand and drilling trough it after hardened, ruining the entire integrity of the structure. The worst thing is that there will be a lot of people watching this, believing that that's the correct way to build a smelter...
