Tin can, fishing weights, wheel weights, propane stove, torch, it's all good. I found the led does not stick to aluminum so I took a u channel to form the sides and a thin piece of aluminum that I shaped to form the front and back and fit it in the u channel. I taped the outside which will burn

I gave up trying to find an exhaust system that even vaguely resembles what I have on N891JF. I'm going to have to build another one that replicates it, unless I want to remove the engine, completely reconfigure the firewall and intake system, etc. Building a new system, as painful as that

I used an electric melting pot when I was doing a bunch of reloading.  If you want to keep the lead "clean", drop some parafin on top the hot lead and stir it and it make the junk float off.  WATCH OUT.  Sometimes it will FLASH OFF.   Face shield and gloves should be mandatory for protection.

I have melted lead many times on the stove and I think all my brain cells remain intact. You're melting it, not boiling it, so the amount getting into the air is insignificant. Obviously don't ever use the pot again for food. A tin can sounds like a good idea. Mike Taglieri On Jan 28, 2017
