When I have used my furnace I can only get down to a silly putty consistency but not liquid.

I am new to this , I get high grade ore and have used the HCL cook followed by wash and melt. Use Borax, ash, a nail, and silicate, but after 45 min it's only a plastic blob. I also melt the above with no acid and got similar results.

Define "furnace". Too many options to make a valid guess.
 
Initial idea is that it needs more oxygen so the propane burns hotter. Might try to open up the ports or get a different burner.

But I could be completely wrong.
