**** Open As Usual! ****
We still have a 6 to eight week lead time for tongs and furnaces as they are made to order.

Our suppliers are struggling to get some items due to transport issues.

Available in most sizes to order contact us for details. This is suitable for a A12 or A16 crucible.

If a lid is used on a crucible it has the following advantages:

  • Retains the heat and heats up quicker.
  • Prevents fresh oxygen contacting the metal surface and reduces slag oxides.
  • Prevents inclusions dropping in if fuel is charcoal or coke

Tongs are used for removal.
