I Forge Iron

Ground Clamp bronze

Recommended Posts

I've acquired some ground clamps from old MIG welders. Melting them down is a treat, but I was wondering if someone knows what alloy of bronze they may be? In the forge the pieces melt beautifully and it's self-fluxing - all the junk floats away to the sides and the molten puddle looks like a mirror. I wanted to see what would happen if I threw some flux in there and it foamed up and oxidized like crazy. I know it's bronze and not some kind of red brass because there is no zinc boil at higher temps.
Anyone know any specifics about this stuff?
