Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX two more questions. One - what if I melt the pewter? Will that tell me anything, and is it safe? Guy online talks about buying old mugs, etc. at yard sales, and melting them down. Two - how about silver? There are different kinds, right? I want to make belt buckles (cast), and maybe bracelets. Lots to learn.
Okay, Martin, talk to me about silver. There is "sterling"; is there "not" sterling? Is all silver the same? Can you melt silver with a torch; without a furnace?
And aluminum. I know there are different "grades". Can you melt aluminum with a torch, and not a furnace" How?
