Tip 1: How to melt the gold at home

to manufacture in home conditions made of precious metals needed smelter.Of course, you do not need industrial unit, which allows to process a few kilograms of gold, because you're not going to engage in the production of jewelry for sale.It is enough a small oven that can satisfy your modest demands creativity.
What requirements must meet the home furnace for melting of metals?It must have a wide range of heating, be compact and easy to use.If you have skills you can muster installation in which carbon and graphite powder is poured between the two such as the composition of the electrodes to which the voltage is applied 25-50 V. will also need a fairly powerful transformer (such as welding).
Due to the corresponding resistance in the graphite powder is formed gradually intense heat.In such an electric furnace, the temperature can reach up to 3000oS, this mode allows you to fuse small portions of almost all metals, including gold .
heating time of the furnace take
s place in the range of 3 to 5 minutes.This allows you to manage the process of melting the metal, turning on and off the transformer.As the metal is melted in small portions, it does not spread inside the furnace and holds its shape well enough.
electric melting furnace is made of available materials: tile or cement tiles, graphite and mica.The dimensions of the furnace may be different and depend on the power network and the voltage of the output transformer.The higher the voltage, the greater the distance between the electrodes.Thus, the use of the welding transformer, the issuing of up to 60 V, requires the distance between the electrodes is about 200 mm.In this volume, the oven can melt several tens of grams of gold or silver.
as electrodes suitable brush by a powerful electric motor.If it is impossible to use such a brush can be cut it out from a piece of graphite.The electrode contemplate two side holes of 5 mm diameter, into which is inserted stranded copper wire.On the inside of a file electrodes make an incision to improve contact with graphite powder.
Mica serves as a lining layer of the walls of the furnace.It is a good thermal insulator.The outer walls of reinforced cement tiles thickness of 10 mm.Stand for oven will serve as an ordinary brick, laid on enameled metal pan with sides.
carbon and graphite powder can be obtained by treating a file served their rods.In the process of melting the powder will burn slowly and will require replacement.
collected furnace transformer is connected to the thick copper wires with external insulation to prevent short circuits.Cooking Baking warm that she later worked without soot and fumes.
Melting is as follows: first with a spatula in the middle of the oven do well in powder, put it in the first portion of the metal and buried.If gold is used minutes scrap of various sizes, it is first placed a piece of the largest, and as its melting added small pieces.
To make sure that the metal is melted, slightly rock the oven.Wherein the surface of the powder will fluctuate.After the molten metal is melted again and turned over.This is repeated until the work is not yet to take a spherical shape (this indicates the quality of the melt).
After melting the metal workpiece to be forged.The product should be obstuchal small hammer on the anvil.

Tip 2: How to melt gold

Gold - the precious metal, ornaments of all the ladies who love the world and not just the ladies.Certainly in every home there is a golden thing that has gone out of fashion, or broken remains inherited from her grandmother, and no one needs in such a way as it is available.In this case, the ideal option for golden thing else handy - it will remelting.
How to melt gold
you need
  • - electric oven;
  • - carbon and graphite powder;
  • - two carbon-graphite electrode;
  • - transformer;
  • - copper wire;
  • - mica;
  • - a special spatula.
The production scale gold melted in special furnaces and industrial plants, which, of course, was not at home and can not be.But for gold smelting house does not need to have special settings.It is enough to have the house was an ordinary home oven.
An excellent option is the electric furnace, where the carbon and graphite powder is poured between the two such as the composition of the electrodes and then fed them power 25-50 Watt and powerful transformer installed.
In such a heating furnace temperature can reach up to 3000 degrees.This will melt the small pieces of gold.
Collect this oven you can from any improvised building materials, such as eg cement or tile, mica, etc.The size of your oven can also be different.The electrodes you can take a brush from a powerful electric motor or just to saw such a piece of graphite brushes.The electrodes must be sure to have 2 holes in which to thread the copper wire.
Mica same oven will act as a heat insulator.The outer wall of the furnace should be done with a minimum thickness of 10 mm, and a stand for your oven can be an ordinary brick, laid on a metal tray.Prepare
carbon and graphite powder for his furnace.It can be obtained by processing a file unnecessary rods.Keep in mind that over time, the powder will burn out and need to be replaced.
Connect collected furnace transformer.To do this, use a thick copper wire having an outer insulation.
done with special blades in the middle of the oven a little hole, then heat the oven and place in a small number of well precious metal.
Wait for a while, shaking the oven, if possible, so that the metal is melted completely.If the surface of the powder, which placed the gold swaying, turn the metal and leave again for a while.Turn the long, until a gold spherical shape of the workpiece.
Take gold, and lower in the water for 1-2 seconds to cool down.Now you can start forging metal with a small hammer.
Remember that welding transformer requires very careful handling.Power switch of the transformer has to be next to you in a convenient location.Never leave the stove unattended.Near keep a container of water, which will be cooled hot billet.
Helpful Hint
in order to preserve the precious metal can be placed in a glass vial from the medication and to melt in this form.Crust glass then easily osypletsya with cooling water.
