Metal Bending

This 90 lb capacity lead casting pot was built by me on this blog about a year ago I did not sell the plans but I took 20 posts and showed you how to build it. It is my version of the Magma which costs over $500. To this point you are looking at under $50 (for bolts connectors and clips the metal in the main pot was almost free except incidentals).The sheet  metal used above was salvaged car fenders. I used a drill-press, chop saw, hand grinder, bench grinder, welders,  and files to construct the valve system and the rest of the pot. The sheet metal brake was also built by me and   was originally made as a home 30 round  clip factory, but as you can see it has many hobby uses. Below is the junk I used. I would need to scrounge one more car fender and bought a nice piece of pipe for the pot but really did not need it. Using this sheet metal only requires accurate lines and lifting the bending leaf.  Richard  W Norman

If they pass laws against guns then you will either make your supplies at home, salvage or do without.
