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
But it has taken me down a long and satisfying road.
Hope all is well
He was drawn into the spell of precise craftsmanship as another might be charmed by words or incantations. - Annie Proulx
