Casting 'Pot Metal'
- Hi All,
I'm looking to cast some 'Pot Metal' parts for an old car restoration.
Using 'rubber'/silicon moulds.
Any thoughs on where to find some 'how-to' articles ?
Either Internet or real paper books <grin>
Failing that any info on casting white metal...I guess there is not
that much difference, apart from the higher melt temp.
Google has failed me on this occassion!
- What is the silver to tin ratio is in Oatey "Silver Solder" ? It can't be much because a one pound spool of silver solder costs about $15 ?
Thank you for everyone that answered my original post asking about Platinum.
Without checking into it, I had thought of platinum as just an another relatively low melting temp, precious metal. A "cool", but more expensive precious metal on the order of silver or gold.
I learned a bunch reading, and quickly concluded that harvesting platinum from old cat converters wouldn't be a cake walk that I wanted to try.
