    Two questions. Could those ingots be remelted inside the mould to get a more seamless ingot? Could the graphite moulds survive the sustained temperatures needed to remelt or would you need a different material?

    I've no idea what that metal was the pulley for the drive belt was made out of but if it broke after casting, it's certainly not anything special. Unless it was some special plated alloy and melting and casting resulted in a dud blend. Still, you made the most of it, good job anyway! If the casing on the motor was that rusty, I'm not sure it was worth restoring it anyway. Do you make a determination of whether some find is on private property or not, before taking it? Not likely that someone would care about something that old and rusted though! :D

    • bigstackD Casting
      bigstackD Casting Hour ago

      Yes mate this motor was pretty bloody old but it was definitely not on private property and any detecting I do with my friends is done on government/state ground so anything I find I can basically take. If I was to take anything from private property I would definitely ask first👌🏻😁.

    • bigstackD Casting

      If you’re getting into this for profit there would be none to be made after supplies gas usage and your time you would be probably behind . Now it’s quite profitable for me only because of the ad revenue on the channel but I didn’t get into this for the money as. I didn’t monetise my channel till last year and did this as a hobby for 3 years before that so definitely wasn’t making any profit back then either. Like I said mate I do this as a hobby away from my regular job so if it did cost me a few dollars here and there I really don’t mind👍🏻

    Dear friend, I have seen one of your videos in which you dare to melt iron, I loved it. Since you are very involved in the subject, in metal smelting, I have decided to ask you if it is possible to melt an alloy of copper and iron. You have more means than me and I would like you to try. A big hug from the Canary Islands, your antipodes, who dreams of your success joining Tuesday and Venus. Estimado amigo, he visto uno tus videos en el que te atreves a fundir hierro, me encantó. Dado que estás muy metido en el tema, en la fundición de metales, me he decidido a consultarte si es posible fundir una aleación de cobre y hierro. Tú tienes más medios que yo y me gustaría que lo intentaras. Un fuerte abrazo desde Canarias, tus antípodas, que sueña con tu éxito uniendo martes y venus.

  • Cerberus Bonsai & Arboriculture

    That was surreal watching it melt-through that ice-block and 'shed' its oxidized&dirty&etc outer-layer, I'm guessing that, if allowed to dry slowly and then simply placed in a swishing bath of water, that the oxidation/dirt/etc wouldn't come off so easily? IE that there's something to the forces/elements/huge-temperature-disparities-being-reconciled that causes 'agitation' on the ingot's periphery to create that dirty-to-clean effect as it passes the ice? Thanks a ton for posting, realize I have to watch like 20+ videos before I can realistically begin my own experiments (am already that many videos in right now!) and'll be cruising yours as this was just tops from what I've seen so far! IF you'd be so kind--- what should a DIY, at-home/McGuyver'ing smelter(wannabe) like myself do if aiming to maximize the *strength* of the final product? I've only learned about aluminum-basics so far and seeing that propane-based/small foundries can do other metals has me wondering if alum is even the best idea, I want to make stuff that is strong (ideally in a "dynamic" sense and less of a 'static' sense, IE my goal/project will be an over-sized slingshot that I'd be using on-job and I want it to be as diesel as possible!) and was intending to just make the best/cleanest alum I could (from cans - cannot tell if it's worth sourcing higher-quality alum alloys) but this video has me wondering!!! Weight of the final product is irrelevant to me only strength, for instance if I could make a use-able hammer from at-home forging I know I will be forging stuff the rest of my life! :D

      @bigstackD Casting It seemed to fast quench when it hit the molds it why I asked. Typically when I cast, I try to get my molds up to the temp of the metal I am pouring so as to not have gas coming out of them olds and to not have the metal prematurely freezing. Was just curious if maybe this time you had somehow gotten so busy or distracted with your friend there that maybe the mold did not get a chance to get very hot is all.

    Hey D, the finished product was fantastic my friend. Have you ever tried stirring the contents of the crucible after it's all melted? I mean a good stir like from the bottom of the crucible all the way up to the top. I'm thinking it might help eliminate some of the cracks and lines. You might need something with a flattened end like a spoon instead of the thin rod you use now. It won't hurt and it's easy enough to try.

    • bigstackD Casting
      bigstackD Casting 20 hours ago

      Yes Susie I have studied so many times so many ways with so many different pieces of metal but at the end of the day it’s up to the melting gods how your Ingot is gonna turn out. I knew straightaway when I was pouring this bar that it was gonna turn out fukd as it poured like honey and not like water because I let it cool down too much before pouring it🤦🏻‍♂️. But at the end of the day I don’t worry I can always re-melt it . I left the bar on the bench for a few days in the garage and every time I looked at it I liked it more and more each time and i got to the point where now I love it and it’s imperfections and wouldn’t ever think about re-melting it😁👍🏻.

He’s such a clingy little dog. In A few weeks I’m going on holiday and won’t see him for 6 weeks it’s gonna absolutely kill me😞.

I've been told adding sodium helps I've been told adding zinc helps but so far I have to agree it seems more luck. Is it possible I could be leaving to much graphite residue before my pour?

A lot of my bars will have imperfections and holes but I honestly couldn’t tell you anything to do to eliminate that as I myself haven’t found out👍🏻😁
