Who wants to melt some aluminum?

Postby darus67 » Mon Aug 24, 2009 2:43 pm

I finally dug my homebuilt aluminum foundry out of my garage.
Who's interested in firing it up and melting some metal?

Read more about it at my long neglected blog here: http://www.visi.com/~darus/foundry2/
and here:

I even got noticed by Make blog: http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2005/0 ... undry.html

I have a couple bags of cans I could donate, but at the moment I do not have anything that I would want to cast. Thought I would like to see the smelter in process as well.
