How do i make an oil burner? Answered

I would like to make a waste oil burner. Yes, i know the hazards of the fumes given off so and so but i have a respirator. Can anyone make me a step by step instruction on how to make an oil burner capable of melting aluminum,silver,and tin. And possibily iron?

If you want to do a quality job read all of this.

Also, who told you you need a respirator? If you build a waste oil burner that doesn't completely suck you can't even smell anything.

If you want a step-by-step wait a couple months, I'm trying to build an oil-burner that's simple enough to easily replicate.

I think the guy at the above adress did a good enough job though.

Did you ever get a chance to do the step by step instructions?

Also, what are you melting metals for? If you only need a small amount of metal (not iron) you could probably do it with a charcoal foundry.

Given the different volumes you are likely to be trying to melt (aluminum v silver) I think you are going to want more than one so you can control the amount of heat better. A huge burner is going to be difficult to control with the small amount of silver, difficult to get to iron temps, and difficult to keep down to tin temps.
