cavala Posted August 29, 2009 Share Posted August 29, 2009 new to posting so hello to the community. 2 things really, all these mythbuster episodes on thermite has had me thinking could there be a way to use the process to cast iron. I realize its very dangerous and Im not saying id ever try it, but basically your byproduct is commercially pure melted iron; 1: Could there be a way to cast the metal? When welding on rail tracks they use a cast. 2: Wrought iron is almost pure iron,could this process be used to create bars for forging. Its prolly crazy and like i said I will not be trying this. Just wanted to throw it out there see what the community thinks. I look forward to your responses, Marc Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
