There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

How many 12 fl oz size pop cans melted down into molten aluminum does it take to fill this mold

Rick

Could be a trick question. What if a few beer cans have been used also? The way I read this, it looks like you just want to know how many pop cans were used.

Actually, if we knew the weight of both aluminum wedges, we could make could make a more accurate guess.
I have an excuse. CRS.

That would be too easy.

Probably not. If this were a large factory operation casting 1500 sets of wedges a day for months, you could compute the amount of aluminum used and the amount of leftover and waste.

yield also depends on the brand of beverage, some have more weight to them ;)

better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...( YES this includes CUBS! )

Or.... settle this by everyone guessing the weight of the pair to the exact oz.( make sure everyone knows if the threaded rod is included in that guess!)

OK guys and gals. Nobody guessed all 3.

1. should be Rudi
2. I had to drop a total of 175 12oz empty cans( all appeared to be the same thickness material near as I could tell, either soda, beer,V-8,lemonaid, etc) one at a time into the crucible, once the cans melted down and cooked for a bit at 1220 degrees, had to scrape off the floating impurities(dross, paint type labelling mostly), then fill the mold up to the proper line, wait about 3 minutes for the aluminum to set some and then separate the mold by gently tapping it, run back in the garage and put the still hot mold back together, run back out and fill the mold again to the proper line, using up all the moulten aluminum cans.
3. I initially was after johnbron, but technically "admin" was listed first, Dennis 2nd. You guys should be lawyers :D

So, with the advice of brewsalot
Or.... settle this by everyone guessing the weight of the pair to the exact oz.( make sure everyone knows if the threaded rod is included in that guess!)

the first member(including Admin, Dennis) :hattip: to correctly guess how many ounces(oz) the set(right side/left side) of wedges with the installed two threaded rods(5/16) and two 5/16 flat washers and two 5/16 wingnuts, as shown in this pic below. Just the alum set, not the nylon set.
new wedges vs old nylon prototype.jpg


Lets see, what am I forgetting??????? How about each member gets one guess today and one guess tomorrow, times starting over OHIO time shown on my computer, and we'll keep going day to day till we have a winner, If you make a mistake and go back to correct it after you submit it, you're disqualified till the next day, so be sure to "Preview" your answer before submitting. I noticed one person with question 1 changed their answer and it didn't show the "EDIT" notice under their guess :wink:

maybe I should call my attorney to see if I left out anything. Rick can't be held accountable for any mistakes and things can change at any time. you're right Shane :thanx:
