    ALUMINUM MELTING

    In this video you can watch how to melt aluminum at home with my new homemade foundry. We must be careful and take precautions. We must wear glasses , gloves and mask and make all this outdoors. Later i will try to melt copper and bronze.
    You can watch how I melt aluminum here:

    What is your crucible made of?

    Is the torch propane? Seems rather small.

    The gas is pure propane. I don' t know about the torch. I had it from the past when I 've made insulation to my roof.I asked about this in the shop I got the gas and they told me that is ok. If it is not enough dor melring copper I' ll buy bigger one.
