  3. Metal Hob 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2013

    I was impressed with the price and ease of use it did smoke like billy-oh for the first hour which I was worried about but after reading here I see that normal. I've used it for all sorts already I'm hoping it will last a long time I do think the switch is bit cheap and cheerful but if its used carefully it should be ok.

  4. Metal melter 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th May 2013

    I was expecting a piece of kit that would at least show the temperature setting. This is just a domestic single ring electric cooking stove with 6 settings 1 to 6. No indication of what setting is appropriate for melting metal and no indication of what temperatures each of the settings are to keep the metal at an appropriate temperature. So rather disappointed.

    Response from Lars, MD of Prince August.
    Hobby casting is not a high tech pastime and everything is based on experience. The plate is thermostatically controlled and shuts off at 320c. This is also perfect pouring temperature for our alloys. Just turn on the plate on full, put a ladle on top and wait for 10min. You can see the metal is getting ready when it is changing colour and the surface is becoming flat. If you are producing an army, use a second ladle for melting the metal and another one for pouring. Pour the metal from one ladle to another to make sure the pouring metal is 300-320. You can also test the temperature with our very high tech wooden metal tester sticks. They are very primitive but they work. Happy casting, Lars.
