A little bit bigger

Few more hours digging in the garage today, found a new melting pot, just a little bit bigger than my electric one :grin:

Bought mine for $10 at a yard sale. I restored it so when the power goes out, Im still casting. A 1936 smelter, because you never know.

Robert you got a gold mine in disguise

Gasoline, white gas, old gas, lamp oil, and kerosene.
Coleman had an entire line of outdoor products made this way. We used them in the 50s & 60s camp outs.
Scouting was roughing it, we left all these modern contorts at home.

We have two kerosene heaters, and I restored one blow torch for the fun of it. They all run off of kerosene.

This torch was a covid project, I had a box of them. This was the final result.
