In this video I am advising on which aluminium scrap is the best choice for casting. By using metal that has been cast before you can be assured it is suitable. I would not use drinks cans for example as they contain so little metal and after melting you would be lucky to recover half of it's weight in usable metal. The recommendations are my own opinions. By using metal that has been cast before you can be assured it is suitable and will give good results when cast again. If you have a free supply of bar or extrusions I guess it may be worth casting a test piece. As there is a lot of machine work to perform on the items I make, I prefer to make sure I have a good start by choosing a good material.
