    Sawdust for casting

    Bought 2 bags of pine sawdust which were about a 55gal drum each for $5/each. They come in some heavy duty clear bags. If you're near Michigan check these guys out for some dust.

    Never used saw dust when casting. We were taught, and still use paraffin wax

    I've always used the Frankford Arsenal Cleancast. It's what I started with and lasts a surprising amount of time. It's very handy for the last flux in the casting pot.

    LMW brought me a big 'ol bag of sawdust and I intend to use it when smelting.
    Done, done, and Im on to the next one...

    I use both, the sawdust is used during the rendering stage where i make ingots from scrap. The wax is always a final flux that the lead gets right before pouring.

    I typically use sawdust. If you do much woodworking you'll always have enough. I usually keep an old coffee can full.

    My table saw has sat under a shed for 3 years. If the pile of sawdust under it gets to high I scoop it into the garden. When I've got a pot of melted lead for ingots I'll get a double hand full and dump in the pot.
