Last summer I built a gingery type dual fuel melting furnace propane/used motor oil. Worked out great melts 5 lbs.aluminum in under 15 minutes and I have even melted 12 lbs. of iron on used motor oil.

Also in the photos is my most recent casting project. I took a cheap underpowered Asian 6" grinder and converted it to a dual 30" belt sander/grinder. It runs great with lots of power in this format and is great for sanding and grinding small metal and wood parts. The V rest does a good job of cleaning and touching up drill bits and other small tools.
