Whats The Exact Cost Of Gas To Melt Metals- Melting Copper & Brass


Today i melt down some Copper and Brass and make 3 great bars and work out exactly the cost of Gas it takes to melt each Bar.

The gas price i am using is Australian Gas prices of $26.95 for 8.5 kilos of gas.
Prices are based on $3.17 AUD Per KG of Gas.
Total Gas Price To melt all 3 off these bars are below.

AUD $5.90
US $4.14
€ 3.69
£ 3.17
INR 288
CAD 5.56
NZD $6.24

  2. I think it’s important to point out, this was one brick… If the furnace is already hot, it’s cheaper to do the second, third and forth brick.

  3. So, with the average price for scrap copper in the USA at $3.76/kg plus the time (and gasoline, electricity, insurance, maintenance on your machines, etc) you took, you are definitely losing money every time even with free materials!

  4. Just use jet fuel ; they said it brought down the twin towers. Do some research, on melting steel and burning jet fuel. These brain children wouldn't lie to us, we're to smart for that stuff. Several city blocks burned after the buildings fell and they smoldered for months after, molten steel beams and all, just goes to show the melting ability of jet fuel. Whatever the news media tells us believe it, it's all been researched, sorry to get away from the video, but melting metal always reminds me of the Event… they are still using Events today… whats next… watch the liberals and rhinos… the news media will give the details for them… what a combination…

  5. I am curious, what are you going to do with the cache of bars? Eventually selling / scrapping, or making stuff? First video I've seen of yours, good stuff!

  6. I think if you would quit these experiments with melting metal, the earths atmospheric carbon monoxide levels would drop. Have you thought about what you are breathing when doing this?

  7. My furnace burns wood with an old hairdryer for a forced air supply. I once put some coal in it and burned/melted out the bottom of my steel crucible!

  8. Do you sell your bars of copper and brass? I think they look amazing and would like to buy 1 of each from you if possible with your autographs on them if I could. I'm a fan and subscriber from the us. If you could give me prices with shipping costs, I will get you the funds asap. Thank you!

  9. if you have an industrial smelting furnace, you need something like 18 gallons of propane per hour and some coal….

  10. Technically speaking mind you, you missed the cost of water and the cost to convert it to ice…, X BTU's.
    AWESOME video 👍 and I never get tired of watching.
    I do wish you would inform us when you add what you put into the mix, bicarbonate (?), and why when you do such a thing to better to better inform the less minded such as myself.

  11. would it be cheaper to have 4 large containers with gold silver copper brass and just skip the burning cost and sell it as a large lot ?? nice to look at 🙂 !!!

  12. In fact you need to add the cost of the gas installation, the furnace, the crucibles, the ice and all tools you used.

  13. Check out oil burner channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUR7wV09xuE
    Go to the end of the video and watch that simple thing make a much bigger fire than what you got going with the propane take. I have seen him melt an engine block.

  14. Wow, that stack of metals was awesome at the end of the video. How cool that would be to have all that metal, so when you get the idea to cast something new, you are ready to go. That is awesome. You should use used cooking oil and an oil burner to melt metal like Oil Burner channel, a guy who is in Australia too. You need a blower, a metal ball, drip oil on the ball, blow the ball with the blower, create an oil mist, and light that baby on fire. It makes your shit look like a little kiddy fire. And it is for free, because you use used cooking oil. Go watch Oil Burner channel if he is still there, and look up "oil burners for melting metal" on youtube. You could mix a little bit of gasoline to the cooking oil maybe if you have a hard time getting it to light. I am not sure about that though. Do what Oil Burner says, not what I say. He is melting engine blocks with his burner, and for pennies on the dollar versus your rig.

  15. how much costs to have some liters of water, a pile of graphite to be consumed in electrolysis, a solar panel, and some electrodes for generating hydrogen?
