Re: [hobbicast] Crucible
- That cocktail/iceburg ice information was the most
practical thing I heard from all this expansion crap.

- Dale, Don't junk your crucible 'of unknown' origin. Heat it to
super hot, scrape and pour out any residual metal and then use it
for whatever. Yes, I know that you aren't supposed to use a si
bronze crucible for leaded brasses. But I do that after a cleanup
without problems. I regularly convert my silicon bronze
crucibles to yellow brass crucibles when the wall thickness of
the bronze crucible get thin enough that I get concerned. The
yellow brass crud will then increase the wall thickness to the
point that I junk the crucible but after getting double duty.
