    Currently I am making such burners and now testing a Frosty T burner which appears to work well in my small cast iron furnace, but have yet to test a melting session. It gets hot enough to melt copper, but cast iron ? I think I need to use my already existing forced air burner.
    But do some people melt cast iron with a naturally aspirated burner ?

  2. There's a couple of youtubers like Big stack D with his Devilforge furnace.
