Any idea if a propane burner something like at https://www.amazon.ca/Portable-Outdoor-Propane-Burner-regulator/dp/B07G5H695G could be adapted to work as the burner?

Well, I melted down my first 6-pack of empties today. By the amount of slag they leave, it looks like the paint on them must weigh almost as much as the aluminum it’s painted on :slight_smile:
