DIY: Melting Cans With The Mini Metal Foundry


An impressive looking garden, filled with handmade metal works, can be successfully completed if you have your very own foundry. That’s why we thought of supplying you with a simple tutorial on how to make a DIY metal foundry. From the beginning you should know that using this device must involve wearing protective gear, like mask and gloves. Melting soda cans is the easiest way to acquire the metal for your future projects and quite frankly the best option for material to use in a device of this size. And recycling soda cans is not the best part: when you don’t use it, the DIY metal foundry is actually disguised! And you won’t find out where it is unless you ask what’s in that odd-looking plant-less pot.  Watch the tutorial to find out more about the process of making your own metal foundry.

    I tried doing what this guy did and made a mess, now I have aluminum as a my patio floor.

    Will try again some other time.

    I tried this too but I didn’t have enough cans saved up (about 20 cans) and was only able to make a tiny ingot. It held up pretty good except for the fire extinguisher which started to flake apart after the first use. I just bought a proper crucible from the internet and I’ll be trying again soon.
