    Fluxing

    Hi, I am new to casting ingots. Is it better to flux before I take out the clips or after. Or does it really matter. thank you for the help. Fred

    Flux after it will make it easier to stir and get more junk out.

    Both, Fluxing before will clean the clips and when you skim them you'll have mostly clean clips without alloy sticking to them. Then flux again to clean the mix thoroughly.

    I'm like Rick. I flux both ways and have only lightweight dust, and clean clips to dispose of.
