Melting COPPER with an Oil Burner

Video Demo

Since launching my home made oil burner for use in my foundry, a question I often get asked is can it get hot enough to melt copper.

Copper has a melting temperature of 1085°C / 1985°F so can a home made oil burner using ordinary, recycled vegetable oil really melt copper?

I decided to have a go... but the weather wasn't ideal and the foundry wasn't insulated as well as it later was... still the results may surprise you in this short video...

Thank you for putting this in layman's teems. I've got no experience with electrical and other videos I've watched don't explain clearly why it works or doesn't.
