  • I've been doing the same thing as a hobby for years.
    Mostly sandcastings parts for little model sterling engines, they make excellent gifts.
    These guys are doing it all wrong, it's an accident waiting to happen.

    1. the aluminium will slowly corrode the steel can they're using, eventually resulting is a spill of 1300 degree F liquid metal splashing out in all directions.
    Use a graphite, clay graphite or ceramic crucible.
    Stainless steel or a thick walled steel crucible is acceptable, but you hav More..

  • Don't they know how dangerous it can be? If you haven't already, just watch Terminator II and you'll see how killers can appear from melted aluminium. We'll see if it was all that "funny" when cyborgs from the future start to kill other cyborgs in the neighbourhood.
