  2. Silicon source for Silicon bronze is the "prealloy" FerroSilicon. Just throwing pure silicon source into the melt won't work so I am told. The Iron lowers the melt point of the silicon making it compatible with the copper melt. The iron is not a desirable element in the bronze, but you will see it in the compositions, its always there in tiny amount as a result of the FerroSilicon. I don't have a source for the FerroSilicon, but I know it is generally not a home made product. hope that helps, Patrick
