At a garage sale, I acquired three pewter plates. It is some kind
of commemorative memorabilia, but they say PEW-TA-REX on the back and
I paid $4 for three of them, and they weigh 5 lbs.
Anyhow, reading about pewter, it seems like a great material to cast
things, make toy soldiers, HO scale accessories, etc. Like lead, it
melts at a low temp, but is not as toxic and dirty. I can melt it
right in the grill.
Has anyone tried casting pewter? And can you make aluminum molds for
casting pewter? It would be cool to make molds on my CNC mill.
