How To Recycle Old Soda Cans In The Backyard

This tutorial guides you through creating your own mini metal foundry where you can melt the cans down and then turn them into various other things.

Warning: Charcoal foundries can reach temperatures in excess of 1,000ºC, which is well above the melting point of hobbyists. This project should only be attempted with adequate knowledge and training, proper protective safety gear, and in a fire resistant area with adequate ventilation. The sparks flying from the foundry can ignite fires, and the fumes from burning dross can be toxic. Use caution and common sense. Use of this video content is at your own risk.
