I bought this system from the tech school a few years back. I have seen the system in action although I have never used it personally. I used to melt scrap copper at a foundry in Harrisburg. I recently hurt my back and I now have a career change. This furnace is in excellent shape with good refractory. It comes complete with all the equipment necessary such as handling tools, crucibles, pyrometer, tongs, pouring ladle, etc. This furnace will melt copper, brass, aluminum, and other metals to name a few.
With the price of non-ferrous metals climbing, ingot manufacturing is now an excellent idea. Check out you tube on metal casting to get ideas. This is not some cheap Chinese table top Ronco melter. This is a serious unit that operates by propane with ablower, controls, etc. It is heavy, I do have a forklift, we can put it ona pallet in your pickup truck or I will palletize the entire system and secure it for freight for an additional $25. All you need now is scrap metal and some forms. If you buy it, I will give you two home made chanel forms that I used at the foundry to make copper bars. Please offer with confidence on this high quality equipment.

I neglected to include some important information about the furnace. The name brand is Speedy Melt, model #B16, serial #2305 it is 115 volt single phase blower. There were no numbers on temperature capacity plate. I am guessing around 2600 degrees is conservative. It comes with 2 crucibles, only one is pictured. I forgot that I had a very important cows hide leather smock that covers your torso area all the way down to your ankles. You should tape heavy leather to the top of your work boots or even tin. I hope this helps, it really is a great unit.
