The hobby foundry worker would be better of directing his
energy towards collecting easier to get, and better quality
scrap to melt, such as old cylinder heads, inlet manifold
castings, auto pistons, etc.
I've had good luck with old disk drive cases. The thing to remember is to
find cast aluminum items since they obviously can be cast so have a good mix of
alloys plus may still have some flux still in them. Melting extruded scrap
aluminum is not as good to melt and pour.
