Reminds me of my youth, Mr. Dave. Always making things to get other things hot.

Hello Mac

Me to.

The first time I melted metal I had a one gallon paint can, some charcoal, and my ex-wife's electric hair dryer.
I was running around work the next day showing everybody this little button of aluminium like it was a piece of gold.
I got a lot of these looks :rolleyes:

But it has taken me down a long and satisfying road. :)

Hope all is well

Ha ha !

I swear, as a kid, I spent more time trying to make hotter fires than I ever spent actually using them. ;)
