Hi everyone, I want to make red brass bushings and I wanted your advice on either should i melt red brass ingot or should I use copper, lead, sn, zn to make red brass ? Also if I melt red brass which elements will I loose? I melt red brass but when it gets solid again it looks kind of dark colored like black, what am I doing wrong? I am melting it in induction heater.I would really appreciate your advice. Thank you ver much.

Welcome to the forum and please put a location in your profile, (nearest main city and country). It's important when recieving replies to quiestions.

 

Red Brass, (C230 ?, Gunmetal? ) for bushings......which will need machining. My advice bases on the information given is to buy or otherwise source a suitable bronze for bushings and machine to size. Easier, cheaper, and safer.
