yeah i do the same thing cans work all right and are great if you want to do a test smelt or somthing, but i generally use scrap sheet aluminium from school. It melts better and it pruduces much higher quality aluminuim, which as said before can be poured into ingots for future use.

I have been casting for years and most casters don't bother with soda cans. They give very little useable aluminum, compared to the amount of slag produced and the quantity of cans needed. Every now and then I go out the evening before trash day and pick up an amazing amount of aluminum stuff. When I get enough, I melt it all down and pour it into ingots (muffin tins work great) for future use.
