    I stumbled across this guy on YouTube last night.

    My first thought was NO FLIPPIN WAY. However, it's on the Interwebb so it's GOT to be true - right? He melts aluminum, brass, copper and iron - in a microwave. Except for the microwave, all his hardware is DIY - and he shows how to do it. Granted the size of his crucible limits the size of the parts he can cast to rather small pieces. And his cast iron is probably just this side of non-machineable, but a microwave? Who'd a thunk it. He has a unique method of mold making too.
