Now that I am lonely during the day I am keeping busy to pass the time by cleaning out the van. Over the years i have accumulated lots of copper fittings which are shop soiled and as such probably no one else wants as it will warrant cleaning them to use in refrigeration systems....time is money!

Are there any problems with melting down and casting copper. One thing i was thinking of was heads for a hammer...or even a drift.

Have lots of pipe too and although its sealed others will look at it as an unknown and possibly risky. Can never be too clean for internal of refrigeration systems!!!
