Metal Melting Points

Metal Melting Point Chart

Sometimes it is necessary to melt or solder metals when working on Steampunk Projects. Here you will find the temps necessary to melt any kind of metal.

NOTE: The specific gravity of a metal or alloy is merely the weight in grams of one cubic centimeter. When it is more convenient to work in troy weights, the number of ounces per cubic inch of any metal or alloy may be found by multiplying its specific gravity by the constant 0.52686.

Here is a list of metals that can be soldered.
