    Dross is a mass of solid impurities floating on a molten metal or dispersed in the metal, such as in wrought iron. It forms on the surface of low-melting-point metals such as tin, lead, zinc or aluminium or alloys by oxidation of the metal. For higher melting point metals such as steel, oxidized impurities melt and float making them easy to pour off.

    With wrought iron, hammering and later rolling removed some dross.[1] With tin and lead the dross can be removed by adding sodium hydroxide pellets, which dissolve the oxides and form a slag. If floating, dross can also be skimmed off

    I have to confess to making charcoal.

    But it's for horticultural purposes - honest. :angel:

    Those bamboo bicycles do look intriguing though, how long has the oldest one in service been going, does anyone know??

    I like the idea of growing my own bike :blush:

    Me too..

    Filthy habit, but I do miss the handicraft involved.

    I will occasionally insist on rolling someone else's.
