    I think we are smelting. Its removing the impurities to get to the base metal...in our case the desired alloy being our base metal.

    Its all semantics...Not really important by any means.

    Remember 'normality'? President Wilson changed it to 'normalcy" and the English language hasn't been the same since!

    The rendering company used to pick our dead cows when I was a lad back on the farm.
    I can still remember the rendering truck guy sitting on the back of a dead Holstein eating his lunch (darn near tossed my cookies that Holstein was pretty ripe!).
