Whoa! What the heck! That casting just blew my mind... And that... Soldering? With that iron thing, wow this was awesome!

I know right?!! The sheet processing just blew me away! The soldering iron is pretty common with low temp metals. I used to have an iron that you just left in a furnace (to keep it hot) and then you pulled it out to solder occasionally. I think this one was electric though... Super cool tuff that I was hoping folks would enjoy. I know I sure did!

Do you know what metal was used for casting those tubes/pipes? I was originally thinking lead, but then they were handling it without PPE so I'm not sure that's right. Then I was thinking perhaps it was pewter.

+Chris Hemmerly I think it was a lead/tin based material.
