Let’s face it, melting stuff is fun! Melting metal is even more fun than burning plastic (you know when it makes that ZOOP sound as the plastic drops through the air). I have my own small foundry and have used it on many occasions to make small metal parts. I can currently pour about 8 lbs. of aluminum at a time, which is enough for most of my projects. I don’t like using lower grade aluminum, so I use old hard drives to make my billets.
I will post more in the future, and hopefully remember to take more pictures of my melts.
