[Video] How To Easily Convert 242 lb Of Aluminum Scrap Into Ingots.

Aluminum is a very useful metal that can be used to make different things (e.g. soft drink cans, plane parts, bicycle frames and other parts, etc.). If you have scrap aluminum parts in your garage, don’t sell those away at a junk shop just yet.  Instead, you can sell them for more if you melt them and turn them into ingots.

In this video, the presenter ‘MP Dragon’ has 144kg of scrap aluminum that he melts into ingots for future green sand casting more than when they were still in their previous forms.

    Great info but the terrible music keeps my phone buffering constantly. Would love more info on the Kiln. Don’t understand how he’s getting waste oil to burn so hot.

      Other line is air from a compressor or bottle of oxygen

    Music is obnoxious. Is this effort worth while for scrap prices or as a step in future raw material needs. I don’t know how to cast.

    I am currently making a small one that uses charcoal I got the plans off of another Facebook post for the air blower with the small unit with the charcoal he used a hair dryer seems to work great for small sand casting and smell ingots
    But I think I’m going to build a big one that uses propane I will use a blower off an old water heater I do not know if I will make ingots that big or not though I should be able to put in a standard Crucible to melt copper and brass as well

    What a huge waste of time, money, and energy. Scrap worth the same price if you melt it down as it is not in ingots. This “idea” is moronic. I seen the same video on copper ingots. By the way, the kiln is $3000 and oxygen is $60 for a small bottle. Do the math.

      I built my own kiln for less than 50 bucks works great. And use a blow dryer for air. So anyone dumb enough to pay 3000 needs their head examined.
