I am upgrading today's forge to a dismal success

I was able to coax the forge into drafting by cheating. I used an in-line duct fan at the far end of the chimney. 25 feet was enough ducting to dump enough heat to keep the fan under 140 degrees.

I didn't cut the video, so it's stupidly long…

Anybody build a 'Venturi Exhauster'? I need to build one in a 6 inch air…

Anybody build a 'Venturi Exhauster'? I need to build one in a 6 inch air duct tomorrow. Just wondering if I need to do the 30/5 degree restriction as I want it to flow passively when not under power.

I am working on a hexagon shaped picnic table for the office

Hexagon shapes are a pain to cut. Lots and lots of 30 degree cuts. They would be so much easier with a miter box.

I should be able to finish it tomorrow night.
