Tell us about yourself!
Thank you for the information very useful.
No I did not copy this from anyone, yes I did use some of his ideas because they were useful. But the rest is all mine.
That is a good idea dan3008. I'm glad your interested in recycling, but the molds I made I melted just aluminum cans from home and then later I used some scrap aluminum I found at work. For the mold all I used was a ceramic plate to hold heat and a steel cookie cutter, and the mold ended up pretty good in my opinion.
Nice! I'm glad I have brought in his interest I hope that if he does make one he has fun making it.
Hey Andrewp34 it all depends on what you are melting down. See if you melt down aluminum cans make sure that the decal is painted on and not a plastic cover because if it is paint if won't release gas it will just become slag on the top of the molten aluminum. But if it has the plastic coating it will release a lot of gases that maybe be bad to breathe in. Thank you for the advice though. :)
You can also use steel wool to increase strength I realized this after my second prototype.
