Unfortunately we had not thought trough the process of handling our pot filled with molten lead. Soon, due to temperature, the handles broke off and we actually almost spilled a potfull as it fell to the ground. Luckily, we still have our limbs and vision. After a first jury rig, the spot welds broke off the sides of the pot as well. So, a more elaborate design was needed. Here again the momemade microwave-oven-welder came handy.
