Ok. I am baffled. This is the first time I have used pewter.
The story is that I got me a nice pewter ingot to use from Rio
Grange and it did not even faze me that the ingot weighed in at 6.5
lbs at the time of purchase.
Well, now that I have the large brick I am having issues figuring
out how to only use a portion of it.
I had expected to find some casting grain-type delivery mechanism,
but instead a large ingot is what I found and purchased.
When I purchased it I thought there would be an easy, obvious
solution. Now I am not sure and rather baffled.
So, the issue is… how do I use this 6.5 lb. ingot? 4"x4.5"x10"
It is too big for my crucible. Duh!
Melt a little off the end?
All of these seem messy. And, my attempts have shown that chisel and
saw are not the best answers from what I can see.
Is there another way? There must be.
Or, is my band-saw the best idea?
Thanks in advance!
