  1. Thanks for the kind words everybody and thank you all so much for even watching!! I'm glad you guys like the designs and I can't wait to show more and more. @kimchi When I remelt the pieces with gunk on them, I usually go for the hand torch and ceramic crucible so I can better control the pour to avoid the gunk and also easily throw in flux to clean it up...not sure if that is the best way, but I haven't had repeat gunky pieces doing that. Would love to know if that is actually "right"? Haha. Thanks again all! -T
  2. Congratulations to you 👍 Looking forward to continuing to support in the future!!
  3. Thank you guys for all of the super helpful comments! I have been mulling over my current set up and I do agree that it is certainly not ideal. What I have decided to do is get a proper sized (1kg proprietary) crucible for the current furnace I have and then use it to melt larger 10oz bars into shot that I can then use with the smaller ceramic crucible. To be honest, having experienced both ways, I think I prefer to use the hand tools although I am not sure if the cost of MAP/Propane will put me off this method. Once again, thank you all so much, not only for your concern but for your helpful and non-judgemental advice, I truly appreciate it! See you in the next one!!
  4. @jonrms your crucible advice was really helpful! Thanks for the sub on YouTube 🤘

  6. @jonrms @BackyardBullion @kimchi Thank you all so much for the helpful advice!! I have a new crucible on order and although it can still hold 2kg, it is taller and narrower and will sit deeper in the furnace which will hopefully remedy some of the heating issues. This new crucible will be able to rest on the bottom of the furnace, is that safe? or should there be no contact at all between crucible and furnace walls/floor? Next time I will attempt to heat the mold for much longer than I have been and maybe the bubbling won't occur. It seems that by popular demand, I will clean up that gem and keep it as opposed to remelting. I think for that mold I will attempt to use just the torch and a ceramic crucible. Look out for that video! Thanks again so much for your help and encouragement 🤗
