Propane tank, burner and furnace.
Surplus aluminum being poured into ingot molds. The crucible is a propane cylindar! The reddish stuff is molding sand. The corn muffin ingot molds are the most crucible friendly shape I have found.
Flask halves separated exposing smoldering plane body!
Hot plane body picked up with fire place tongs.
