Melting SALT in a Furnace

Hey guys, I’m Nate welcome back to the dome where today! We’re gonna be doing some experiments using salt and seeing what happens if we melt it down in our foundry some other channels have already Done some experiments using molten salt, and I figured it was our turn to give it a shot so […]

Metal Melting Furnace Build

In this video Im going to show you how I made this metal melting furnace It’s basically a trash can or still pail lined with Kao Wool. I Got the plans from Grant thompson. I’ll leave a link in the description for his channel It’s a smaller metal melting furnace But I have melted aluminum […]

Can You Melt Ice Melt?

Melting Aluminum Into Ingots

in this video I’m gonna show how I melted down these larger aluminum ingots into these smaller muffin sized ones I had to do this because as you can see they don’t quite fit in my crucible and the smaller ones are just much easier to handle and they melt faster as well to do […]

-321°F Liquid Nitrogen vs 2000°F Metal Foundry

Hey guys, I’m Nate welcome back to the outside of the workshop, we’ve got another random experiment today We’re trying and this one is brought to us by youtuber elite fusion Z who asks What does liquid nitrogen do inside of the backyard foundry Elite fusion Z? We think this is a great idea? Well […]

Using Only Paper to Melt Metal

In today’s video, we’re going to see if we can make paper burn hot enough to liquefy metal. [Music] This is paper. Paper was invented in China in approximately the year 105 CE. It’s usual for a lot of things. We use it for writing, printing, drawing, folding, and occasionally, although it’s not a very […]

How To Make The Mini Metal Foundry

Things aren’t always what they might appear to be. For example, this decorative houseplant you’re looking at, is actually an artfully disguised, metal melting furnace. In this project we’re using equal parts of sand and plaster, to make a simple backyard foundry, that’s powerful enough to melt scrap metal in seconds, but still pleasant enough […]
