Copper Ingots

Melting some scrap Copper tubing (Thanks Vas) and a little scrap wire. Pouring Copper ingots , Most scrap yards/ recyclers will not accept home made ingots, so unless you know the recycler, leave it its current state.Not to mention the added cost and time to melt it down. Fuel cost alone added would cut severely into your value as scrap. Just turn it in and use the money to build a forge.Not if you make a used motor oil blast furnace like I did,,,,,free fuel.
