*DO NOT USE THIS TOOL IF YOU HAVE A PACEMAKER. REMOVE ANY JEWELRY ON YOUR HANDS WHILE USING. IF YOU HAVE ANY METAL IMPLANTS, MAKE SURE TO KEEP THEM AWAY FROM THE COILS*

 

The induction forge can be used for heating and melting metals. This video goes over how to make your own coils, starting around 14:00. Our coils are 1/4" and use 1/4" nuts, so no need for soldering: https://youtu.be/GU6n488i2mI?t=826.
