    You can spoon off a lot of that flux stuff then pour into a slick sided stainless bowl or whatever. Once it cools, you can chip the rest of the flux off and remelt to cast into small ingots.

    The one I have has a welded plug in the end of the pipe so I would actually have to bend the tube. They are dirt simple things to replicate so it could be easily done regular 1/4" pipe. All I really need is time to mess with it. I doubt that I...

    What is to decide? You take all you can get. First the cheaper stuff. Then the rest. All good clean seriousness, 80 cents a pound is not bad for scrapyard junk even though you do have a goodly amount of waste. Problem with wheel weights is that...

    I have thought about bending a 90 on the weed burner to use under a rounded bottom pot like a cut in half propane tank. The flame is loose enough that it should theoretically spread evenly over the entire bottom and up the sides. It certainly will...

    I think laser cast has silver in the alloy because it is nor refined out like the good lead. I saw a program on that somewhere. Anyway silver comes with lead naturally so they are not spending extra to add silver.

    The only thing in short supply is cheap/free stuff. It's not the end of the show. You can either buy whatever you want or just don't shoot so much.

    It takes about 1 #20 tank to do about 700-800 pounds so it is a relatively small cost. Especially when you own a propane company :bigsmyl2:] I might also mention that you get about 20 pounds if you have the tank filled where most of the exchanges...

    Famous last words. I had met a guy who was going to weld on a tank that he has supposedly purged. He died 3 days later from injuries. I found the tank head 200' away wrapped around a tree.

    Welcome aboard Flailguy. There is tons of discussion around here to read through for days and days. You really need to slug the barrel to figure out what bullet size will likely work best for you. Generally the .360 will be a little big for most...

    There are several ways to purge a tank but here is the only one that regular guys cannot mess up. 1. Take the tank to the local propane dealer and ask them to remove the valve. 2. Fill the tank totally full with very hot water. This is...

    It will not be too brittle. In fact it will not be brittle at all unless you water drop from the mold. True that with only 1% tin you will not get the toughness that would be needed if you water drop. I don't think you need more tin unless you are...

    You cannot silver solder on to pewter because the difference in melting temperature is about 600+ degrees. Pewter melts around 530 degrees and silver solder is around ( pending exact alloy) 1400 degrees. Therefore the pitcher must not be pewter....
