Very cool. I love the ingots. My best friend has a "corn on the cob" cast iron muffin tin he uses for casting. He has piles of 4 inch corn cobs. Makes me laugh.

Nice job on getting that right the first try.

I've been melting down all my scrap aluminum into relatively clean ingots:

That's it for now. I hope to get back into this a bit more frequently in the Fall. With me, progress is always slow, but steady.

 

Best,

 

Jesse.

Great work Jesse, love Ur projects.

 

Do invest in some more substantial footwear to don while pulling that molten metal out of the furnace.
