I am working on a furnace myself. I am going with an old propane container. Going to cut the top of after I purge it and use it as a lid. I am going to be smelting aluminum.

I am going to buy pre-mixed refractory cement and line it with that. Still have to figure out what I'm going to do for a crucible.

Where did you buy or where are you getting you pre-mixed refractory cement?

Thanks

Power Brick in Bogart, GA. It is about $40 for a 50lb bag. I don't know where you are located, but I doubt I'll need a whole bag.
