Was presented with some really great casting alloy. From an old printing plant for a regional newspaper that dates it's founding to the 1880's here in North Central Montana. When they built a new building and moved and went to new printing machinery and techniques the just threw all the old type, lino or whatever, in the old coal fired furnace in the basement. The building was used off and on for 40 plus years after sitting vacant for some years. The people that now own it are refurbishing it into a museum/antique shop with living quarters included. They cleaned out the furnace and got 8 five gallon buckets of furnace cleanings that weigh every bit of 100 pounds each. I took a sample clinker and smelted it, beautiful high grade bullet alloy. I got some of the buckets home, but some were filled with warm cleanings and are soldered to the steel bucket. Lifting gear, fork lift, skid steer, or something is going to be required. I think i've got my summer work cut out for me, never liked yard work anyway, good thing I'm retired, I'd have to quit my job otherwise, priorities, you know. Conservatively I estimate 550-600 pounds of alloy can be salvaged from this mess. Wish me "fun and good times".
