Melting Aluminum Cans At Home - Easy DIY Recycling Process

  • Loading...
  • Published on:  Thursday, August 8, 2019
  • Today I'll be melting about 300 aluminum cans at home in my backyard foundry. I have been saving these beer and soda cans from some time and I'll turn them into big pure aluminum ingots. This is a very simple DIY project that anyone can do with the proper tools. The whole melting process took about an hour and used a quarter tank of propane.

    For all those wondering, I don’t do this for the value of ingots in money. I don’t sell them at all. It’s main purpose is the artwork that I make from them.

    6 pounds of aluminum. That's about $3.30. Didn't even pay for the 1/4 tank of propane.

    At home - Easy? This is by no means easy, it’s a skill and requires some investment in the proper tools and the cost including the propane would negate any profit from collecting cans. But I can see where you are not doing it for cash you are doing it for your artwork. Thanks for sharing.
