In my ongoing quest to reach the iron age, further experiments were conducted concerning furnace design and the treatment of ore. I began by making a very short furnace. A pit 25 cm wide and 25 cm deep was dug and the tuyere of the forge blower placed in a 15 degree downward angle into the pit. Onto this, a furnace stack made of mud and grass was built 25 cm above ground level. The furnace was fired at various stages to help dry it. It took less than a day to build. Eucalyptus wood was collected dead off the ground and stacked into a re-useable charcoal mound I had made previously. The top was sealed with mud and the mound lit. It took about 2 hours 30 minutes for fire to reach the air entries, at which time the holes were sealed and the top closed with mud. Iron bacteria from the creek was gathered and brought to the smelting hut for processing. Charcoal was ground into a powder and mixed with the ore and water in the proportions of 1:1 char to ore by volume. This mixture was formed into 59 pellets 2.5 cm in diameter and then dried on top of the furnace. To make the smelt, a wood fire was made in the furnace and allowed to burn for about an hour by natural draft and blowing. When the wood burnt down to the tuyere the furnace was filled with charcoal and 10 pellets were added to the top and the blower was engaged. Three handfuls of charcoal and 10 pellets were added at about 7 minute intervals totaling about 42 minutes. Charcoal was then continuously added after the last charge until the basket was empty. It took a total of about 3 hours working the blower until the operation ended. The mass of slag and iron prills was prized out of the furnace using a log and wooden tongs. It was hammered flat while hot but no large bloom was made. Instead many small iron prills were found. These mostly seemed to be cast iron. So far this is the largest amount of iron I’ve made in the wild and it used less charcoal than previous attempts, so I consider it a success of sorts. The ore must be mixed with carbon to ensure the correct reduction chemistry normally provided by carbon monoxide in a taller bloomery furnace. The fact that cast iron was produced suggests that next time less charcoal powder be added to the ore pellets or perhaps none at all considering that dead iron bacteria may also contribute some carbon to the ore. Alternatively, cast iron can be re-melted in a “finery” furnace, a small highly oxidizing furnace, to remove excess carbon, producing steel or iron. Alternatively cast iron can be converted into malleable cast iron by heating it in an enclosed container at 800-1000 c for long periods. Further experiments will be conducted. About Primitive Technology: Primitive technology is a hobby where you build things in the wild completely from scratch using no modern tools or materials. These are the strict rules: If you want a fire, use a fire stick – An axe, pick up a stone and shape it – A hut, build one from trees, mud, rocks etc. The challenge is seeing how far you can go without utilizing modern technology. I do not live in the wild, but enjoy building shelter, tools, and more, only utilizing natural materials.

It's mostly cast iron because I added too much charcoal powder. Previous attempts (at home, not in the wild) yielded malleable iron that could be hammered flat. I thought that such a short furnace would be too oxidizing but it turns out ok. Any iron smelters feel free to ask questions/ offer advice bellow. Thanks.

The best part is how he goes to progressively larger sticks to try to pry out the slag and you can see his irritation

Would it be possible to have the slag auto separate from the iron? Assuming there is a density difference between the two, maybe using a clay cup or something with enough heat can get the two to separate on their own?

Amazing videos as always

I might have missed it, but I think a step was missed; what happened with the ‘orange slime’, was it mixed with sand?
Enjoying the videos. I purchased your book and it doesn’t appear to indicate how Orange slime was made into powder(?)

I've watched this video several times and have an observation and a few questions. Observation: I hate that there's no video on what one can do with the iron prills. I had to look up an imitator channel to see…and it was pretty cool. Iron tools galore.

Question: I've watched enough videos like this, especially some of Youtube's channels featuring medieval iron forging channels, to know an iron bloom when I see one. But the chimney here was really short, yet he was able to make an iron bloom that could be wrought, even if it was mostly slag. So does one even need to make a tall chimney to draw iron from the ore?

Question 2: I live in North Carolina and we have the infamous red clay that is abundant in the American Southeast. It purportedly has high levels of iron in it. Can one theoretically prepare standard red clay like this and draw iron out of it? Or does one need to find the iron bacteria in a stream?
