The 3000 Degree forge

Since i am starting out i want to make a forge that will withstand 3000 degrees F and i want it so that i can use it to heat metal and melt it in a crucible and pour it for ingots if i want. but the reason i decided on this temp is because it can heat or melt nearly pure iron so i can do some of my own metal mixtures and alloys. but on a $73 a week budget it may take some time but as a beginner i want something that can withstand this temperature so i can experiment with different things.

Sounds like you’re going to be building a Venturi style burner. Check out you tube for some plans and see if it’s something you’re willing to try.
