Okay Quick Question...

Recommended Posts

Okay quick question.  I do want to do some melting of metal either tomorrow or monday.  Now I see most people usually preheat their ingot molds.  I'm wondering if you do this with the muffin tins as well.  What I'm wondering is I do not as of yet have a release agent.  Would I still be able to pop the aluminum puck out of the tin just as easy.  Every youtube video I've seen I've never seen anyone spray in a releasing agent.  I'm almost wondering if I'm making this a bit more complicated that in should be LOL.  Any thoughts and suggestions yea I did read threads on this but I had to double check appreciate it ahead of time.

Wait to melt until you have your sand ready to go.  Make your mold and pour into that.  You can (and should) make some sand ingot molds for the left over metal, as well as some extra just in case you don't want to pour into your actual mold for any reason.
