Walstr's Smelting Setup

A cast iron pot with a handle bolted on one side for easier pouring.

Ingots from a homemade mold. The ingots are designed to fit between joists, I suppose for stacking in an unfinished garage?

Skimming the clips.

Ingot mold. Channel with angle iron welded on the ends.

A comfortable setup in the back yard.
