  Homemade Gas Forge for Hardening Steel 2 of 5  

For the lining I used 1" ceramic fire wool. It cuts with a bread knife and bends and conforms easily. I wear nitrite gloves and a mask to avoid breathing any fibers.

I fit it and mark where the hole is with a Sharpie.

Stab a hole through where you marked.

Bend two thin 1" wide steel strips. I cut these from an old steel washing
machine back to make two stands bent so the tin rests on them.
I may bolt these in place when tested.

Fire bricks form a surrounding wall and I added a thin ceramic shelf
to put the steel on, just so I can get it out easily.

I will also be washing the blanket with kiln wash mix to prevent fibers escaping in use. Thanks to Neil Blythin for pointing this caution out.
