    free Mifco speedymelt b160 melting furnace

    Being surplussed from R&d, another division of the company I work for, for the cost of shipping/free pickup. About 22" square, 30 " tall, 425k btu, sixteen pounds aluminum/48 bronze, 3000 refractory. Currently in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. I'm set, sing out if you're interested. Pics in an hour or so.
    edit:Set up for natural gas, 90 cfm blower for air feed. About 500 pounds. Actually, it looks like most of the furnace fits in a 20inch cube. Photo shows a two man pouring shank and what may be a lifter to get the crucible out of the furnace.unnamed (4).jpg

    Sorry to get your hopes up, I was only one of several avenues for its disposal.

    Lesson learned check. Better to secure a object as is in your possession. Before declaring it a free item. The attempt is still appreciated I'm sure.
