    I’ve acquired about 1400# over the summer, separated about 1/2 of it into clip ons with no zinc, and stick ons clean. When it cools some will be melting and storing. I think I’ve got enough to make it, but I also thought I had enough money to. We’ll...

    I’ve never melted range scrap, but it seems like there would be quite a lot of copper jackets in the skimming. Along with dirt, rocks etc. copper is quite heavy, especially that much. I don’t think you could get much more lead out of that bucket.

    Cast iron skillets work although they aren’t real deep like Dutch oven. Propane good just have to watch temp and go slow in case you miss some zinc.

    I don’t believe God ever leaves his children, if someone leaves it’s us not him. I do believe that some times God puts us in the fire to temper us, not to punish, but to make us better followers of his word.
