Re: Tilting Batch furnace
- I've been kind of lurking & went to the link listed below. I believe
if I was this guy, i'd change the hype in my add. On one hand he says
you can make $2k a day & in on the other hand, in his plans section,
he says he can't finance their construction. Maybe someone needs to
send him his own link. britt

in to melt without busting it up would not hurt my feelings. I've
been tempted to buy the guy's plans and build one..
I do happen to have a source where I could get as much aluminum engine
heads and transmissions and aluminum car wheels as I would ever want for
what the scrap yard would pay, which aint much and in some cases, free.
In addition I have a bunch of 5 speed Mitsibishi transmissions that came
out of late 80's ford trucks that are probably worth more as ingot than
as transmissions at this point. :)
