    Aluminum melts at relatively low temperatures, it’s one thing that makes joining aluminum parts by soldering or welding so tricky. An aluminum soda-can has almost no resistance to melting, so any decent source of heat should do it. The problem is containing the molten metal.

    Alzheimer’s has been scientifically linked to aluminum. Wouldn’t the fumes be toxic as well?

    This is interesting! Do you know how hot the foundry actually gets? Could it melt copper, iron, or bronze?
