Demonstrating the Aristotle Furnace

Day 54

This video clip was shot by one of the participants at my March 10 demonstration at the monthly meeting of the Ontario Artist Blacksmith's Association (OABA, through the work of editor Sean Stoughton, regularly posts video on to its own YouTube site. )
The sound quality is uneven, and as hand held footage is a bit jumpy. The beginning explaination is missing, but if you stick with the clip, you will mostly get the sense of how the small re-melting furnace works.

For more info, download a handout at:

An earlier description of this demonstration was made here on B2B : March 11 - the Aristotle Furnace

Saturday and Sunday this weekend were spent taking part in a presentation by the Dark Ages Re-Creation Company at the Royal Ontario Museum. The ongoing experimental iron smelting work was part of the presentation. Although strictly not part of the B2B project, reference to the OAC was made (via a sign).
