Can you melt Aluminun in a lee meltig pot,

if so, is it just a piece of a aluminnum you buy from a metal supplyer.

if not, what can you use besides a 2 part plastic or lead. is there another metal I should use.

the reason why I ask Im trying to attempt to make some surface irons

any advice is helpful

Thank You.

I used to work in a foundry and some guys I worked with said they used it to make light jigs although I have never seen it done for myself If you go to lee's website ther is a list of material they do and don't cover under there warranty
I do know you can use tin in a lee pot and that should work great for what your doing
good luck And I hope this helped
