If you've got a few of them kicking around, and you need something

to do next summer, try this.

That is one of the coolest things I've seen, I have plenty of hills to cast down here, just need the Aluminum.

hmmmm,  I just got a Massey 7 hydro and it came with three engines - each one with large holes in the block.  :(

I guess we know what Will will be adding to his scrapping adventures. :). I liked this but I can see a danger of underground pressure building up & possibly blowing out.

There were several on Ebay with the highest one selling for $250.The last one was on auction with less than a day to go and it was up to $4550 with over 80 bids before the auction disappeared.I suspect it violated Ebay guidelines in one way or another.

I had a pile of them yall could have bought.

 

It would take forever for it to cool. When I went to the smelter and two of the aluminum ingots got contaminated with magnesium we put them in the bed of Christine and filled it up with water from the hose. I had boiling water in the back of the truck for 30 minutes. I drove home and put the hose on them again. My water comes from a well and in cold. It was still a hour before I could touch them.

That is so cool, beautiful even.

BUT

I can't tell you how much protective gear it would take to get me to do that. Water in the ground flash steaming, blowing molten metal all over the guy doing it and any spectators. Shudder.
