    That synchronized quite well! How much does that crucible weigh, when full?

    that is an A 16 so it holds 46 Lbs of brass and weighs 9 Lbs MT so 55 Lbs, I feels heavier at the end of that shank. I may move up to an A-20 My furnace is big enough, that would give me 60 Lbs of brass.

    Must be a good pour video - nobody is complaining that you didn't record and edit in the shakeout!

    Maybe it's the music...

    What I find most interesting is that you are getting something out of re-watching it, ie. the way you are side-stepping, which you mentioned being surprised by. Maybe we should all record our pours for future analysis - I know I'm always trying to streamline and improve my own pouring routine, maybe that would help.

    What pouring temperature do you shoot for with brass? Fahrenheit.

    that was a VERY Yellow Brass at least 40% Zinc so it would be 1875- 1975, it was about 1900F
    For red brasses I go 2000 to 2200
