A new use for broken down shopping carts

A new use for broken down shopping carts.

Roger did dig this shopping cart out of the dump. He had to make it sturdy enough to hold this gas forge. He built the gas forge from 10 inch pipe--not sure of the particulars. He got the plans off the internet...it uses propane to heat with. With it being on this cart it is easy for him to roll it outside while it is being fired, and does not have to wait for it to cool down to bring it back in once he is done with firing it.

It is lined with Kao-wool--at least I think that is what it was called. The bottom where he lays the knive blades to be tempered is lined with fire brick.

Now that is neat.. recycling at it's very best. I am so impressed with this, and of course Roger's skill in making it.
