Tilting melt furnace

This was one of my old melting furnaces good for aluminum. It was so large it would melt down an entire engine block and misc. scrap to pour a piece and then pour the rest into ingots for later use. The molds were set low in the sand pit in front of it and the metal was transferred via a steel rain gutter type trough strapped to the pouring lip and to the top of the investments cup area. I no longer use it and only kept the crucible when done. I still have one half that size but seldom use it either. It held about 800 lb aluminum per melt if needed. bpfink
