What induction furnace should I buy for copper casting?

Recommended Posts

So, I'm looking to get a relatively small induction furnace to melt and cast copper for making bars and other things from scrap. I'm looking online but all I find are those $300 induction ones and I don't overly trust them. Does anyone know where I can find a decent induction furnace for less than $500 AUD, and yeah I live in Australia so if it ships there, that would be great. I'm not too concerned at the size, 1KG will be enough.

Good Morning,

I have a 15kw, 220v single phase, Induction Heater (Forge). I have never thought it would liquify metal. I think you would need a pile more current!! All of a sudden, your inexpensive thought is out the window and GONE.

You could make your own, it is only a collection of a bunch of pieces. It may take you 20 years to get close to what you thought you wished for.
