This was once a gazebo that the snow broke. Can anyone use it? I think its aluminum... Otherwise its going into the recycling bin.

I'm tempted to say bring it because it would make raw material for aluminum casting, assuming it is aluminum.
Unfortunately my foundry isn't ready, yet, so this stuff would just sit around in the way.

I say bring it in. An induction furnace is high on my priority list right now.

I've been looking over the schematics on this site: ... Heat1.html. I am hardly the one to vet the design but it certainly looks like something we could start from.
