Rio Is correct, It is safest to keep the Crucible in the electromelt
no matter what you have to do to make that happen. You should be able
make a Thin stainless L shaped strap that can be screwed down near
the hinge that can be turned into place to hold the crucible in place
and stop it from moving.
If you remove the crucible and it cracks or breaks while it is out
in the open, the metal might get on you or your shoes and cause
serious damage to you and other equipment. This has happened to some
people years ago. Don’t let it happen to you ! Safety first.
