I have, courtesy of the wonderful people here, a furnace, lead, mold, etc. What do I use for flux - any crayon? I need a slatted sppon, right? Safeway/Wal Mart right around the corner, (that is SO nice!), and I think I can score a scrap piece of plywood to cast on. I have leather gloves, will find some goggles, and then I just plug the furnace in, let it warm up, (or do I put an ingot in whenI turn it on), and wait? When it's molten, I drop a small peice of wax in, avoid the flames, scrape out around the sides with the slatted spoon, and drop the dross on the plywood. When the melt is a uniform silver color, then I dip the Lee mold corner in for a minute, (30 seconds?), to warm up. Then, move it underneath, lift the handle and pour in at a slight angle to "swirl" the lead into the mold. Wait about 5-10 seconds, use the sprue thumper to swivel the sprue plate, and dump the boolits onto a piece of old towel.
Do I have this right? I hate screwing up.
I wish people would realize reloaders are recyclers, before anyone else was!
