    Let's see your ingots collection

    So I'm getting into melting aluminum. I plan on making a Electric Foundry (kiln) that is based off the Fire-Keg on YouTube. I am doing this size because I plan on pouring a lot of aluminum into one huge project which I need to learn to cast for. But because of that, I will be saving a lot of aluminum and it got me wondering, what do people have as their collection of ingots? So please! Post a photo of your ingot collection. I'm honestly curious.

    Only casting I do is with my fishing line while I'm drinking a beer that I bought with the money I got taking my base metals to the scrapyard.
