1. Set up the foundry
2. Light the charcoal and add aluminum
3. Heat the crucible until the aluminum melts
4. Pour the aluminum into the mold
This setup produces a solid hunk of aluminum, leftover aluminum slag,and charcoal ash.

Like I said in the private message nice instructable
thanks; the clay saucer was just a spur of the moment after I realized that the heat needed to increase in order for the melt to pour before it solidified. And I used the sea shell as a mold because I'm too cheap to buy green sand.
LOL. <br> <br>I was REALLY curious to see a clamshell crucible. <br>Then, I read the linked version, and it made a bit more sense. <br> <br>
yes it does make more sense
