Vince uses his metal lathe, of course, but a wood lathe will do the job. Customer Book Reviews Excellent for the do-it-yourself tinkerer By Big Jon on Feb 14, This book explains making ceramic crucibles in your home shop. Crucibles are not always easy to find and they are very expensive. For a small scale foundry they are easily the biggest expense you have.

The crucibles you can make using this book are not commercial quality, but they are your own product and very cheap to produce. I think they work about as well as commercial crucibles. The instructions are concise and well explained.

As with all of his books, Vincent Gingery delivers the why as well as the how. A very empowering book. It Works By H. Dwyer on Nov 29, I had built a small, charcoal fired furnace and was anxious to try it out. After making a steel pipe crucible I realized that it took too long to heat the crucible and it was overall too large for the furnace with little room for fuel.

Commercial crucibles seemed too expensive for such a low budget undertaking so I looked for and found this book. My daughter is a ceramics teacher and with her help we followed one of the recipes in the book for making a clay mixture that would hold up to the stresses of melting metal in the furnace in a clay crucible. The recipe showed us what ingredients we needed along with the proportions for the mix. After firing in a kiln I was pleased with how the "just right" sized crucible fit in the home built furnace and how quickly it heated up.

It has been used a number of times and has not shown any signs of cracking or deteriorating. In this book you learn how to make ceramic crucibles, crucible tongs, and crucible glaze. Silicon carbide crucibles are discussed briefly, with the implication that they are beyond the reach of the typical home workshop, although they were invented in , so you never know; maybe you could with enough research and preparation.

Like other books in this family, the writing is plain and the technical drawings are good. The photographs in this book are extremely helpful; even though they are small and black-and-white. That list is from my recollection, only. Proper crucible tongs must be forged to closely match the shape of a crucible, to avoid putting unnecessary stress on the hot crucible when pouring molten metal.

Since I currently lack knowledge of blacksmithing, I would have appreciated a few more words of advice about how to forge the tongs into the perfect shape.

The author gives general advice, and provides a photo of tongs which seem to match a template with impressive accuracy. I guess now is the time to go order some blacksmith books! It covered safety aspects and how to identify potential crucible failures. Informative but I wanted to know materials, proportions and the process. All that information is provided in detail.

The process however, seems more tedious than I anticipated. Certain molds require tools and machining that a person may not have on hand. I was hoping to make my own crucibles right away.
