Smelting

Katie's article on her ring was interesting, as i'm learning about smelting. It's one of Sirion's trades. And i recently saw a show called Rough Science where they made gold.

In WoW, i smelt copper ore into copper bars, tin ore into tin bars, and copper and tin bars into bronze. Yes that's what bronze is.

Rough Science is a great show. It's about a collection of cool scientists from various fields. They're given a mission to produce something using limited resources and simple tools. They currently have 4 series. Besides smelting gold in the last one, they also built a metal detector, built a furnace with bellows, and built a altimeter using a coiled tube. They were able to measure the difference in air pressure over 50 vertical feet.
