Aristotle Furnace - Photo Essay

The Aristotle Furnace is a small re-melting furnace originally researched and prototyped by Skip Williams. It was further developed by the Early Iron Underground at Smeltfest in 2009.

I've been waiting for Skip to publish up a full working description of his work. (There are a few references on this blog in earlier posts.)

A number of the EIU were (lucky!) enough to attend the annual conference of the Historical Metallurgy Society in West Dean (UK), 2–3 September 2010.
From that event, Donald Wagner has put together a rather good photo essay showing the construction and operation of an Aristotle furnace by Lee Sauder, Steve Mankowski and Sheldon Browder.

The essay can be found HERE.
