Making a Copper Ingot from Braided Copper Wire

Tinned Copper braided wire is found in older tv’s mostly.
I’ve built up a bit so I thought i’d try out melting it down to make an ingot.

Check out my recommended safety products, Furnaces & stuff on amazon..

I recommend this Furnace..

It uses Propane Gas which is much cheaper to run with no problems like burning out the element and gives you better options for crucibles like stainless steal or cast iron which last a long time.

Watch more of my melting videos..

The tin is just plated over copper so not sure of the percentage of tin vs copper, probably less than 5% tin.
