Solar Furnace!?

March 25, 2006

It looks like everybody has gotten the locomotive package I sent out last week.  The only thing to do now is waiting for them to get back to me.


Just for kicks, I built a solar furnace last weekend using an old satellite dish.  A solar furnace is simply a bunch of mirrors oriented to focus the sunlight at a chosen point.  The focal point can reach very high temperatures to the point of melting metals.  I tried it last week but the sunlight was very limited.  Look who was heling me out once again on one of my crazy belle Christine!
