and indium--then I learned that the resulting alloy (Field's metal) "wets"
ceramic--meaning the ingot would be cemented to the ceramic once it cooled.
I think I'm just going to use a Teflon-coated frying pan instead. Teflon is
pretty stable and non-reactive up to 500 degrees, and once the indium melts
at 313 degrees, it should start to dissolve the tin and bismuth, so I
wouldn't have to approach the melting points of those metals.
Any thoughts on this?
