I generate a lot of aluminum soda can waste (as you may have seen in my video on making Alum), and I've always wanted to have the ability to melt them down into ingots. Why? No real reason, I just thought it would be cool! I was actually making another video this weekend, but ran into some problems at the end. So instead I bring you the aluminum forge :) Once I figure out what's going on with my other experiment, I'll certainly be posting that as well.
