  • This is the frame all welded up.

  • Here is the finished frame all cleaned up and with the casters attached. The casters thread into 3/8-16 nuts that have been welded to the bottom over 1/2" clearance holes. The studs on the casters are short enough that they don't reach the top side, so no holes on the top.

  • Here I am testing the stability of the unit. That is 110 lbs of refractory cement plus me (another 170 lbs). The frame showed no tendency to tip up at all, even with the higher center of gravity that I pose versus what the furnace will be. It also seemed to roll around fairly well.
