    After mold cleaning, alloy fluxing, and other advice above, add about 2% tin to the alloy, and pre-heat not only the mold, but also the spru plate. A cold(er) spru plate will inadvertently "chill" the alloy as it passes into the mold and will cause...

    20-1, lead to tin, is 95% lead to 5% tin (20 times 5 = 100). That's a lot of expensive tin, when, imo, 2% tin would do. 1.) Clean the mold with care and attention to the minute vent lines. 2.) Make certain that no wax is getting into the...
