    Found out so far, that I ought to be using Saw Dust as "Flux" - I have a foot tall pile of Saw Dust ( all nice local Hard woods too, ) under my Table Saw, so, lookin' good there with that!

    The link wouldnt open for me so I had to Google search it and open the book that way. I copied the link I used so if anyone else has issues with the original link they might try this one. Thanks for sharing!

    Nice Article. One issue I have is heat treating led bullets in the kitchen oven. The article suggests this and we did it back in the late 70's when I was a teenager trough the early 90's in my own home but stopped. Remember my wife not happy because it would stink. When out daughter was born in 1990 then the oven was off limits and I quit casting. Always wondered if maybe I shoud have done a wipe test to see if any contamination was preent in the oven after we finished.

    Anyone else have concerns with using the oven to HT? Have a couple of MP (materials and processes) engineer friends who aid they would not use a kitchen oven to do this. Got me to thinking about this again.

    Good point!

    I think we should not use a Food Oven for that...

    Find some other means, and keep it outside.
