    There are some melting devices like Lee etc., but they cost some money.
    I’d use a portable electrical stove($20) and cast iron pot($10) on it and some ladle to remove clips and scam. What do you think?

    Turkey/fish cooker burner and a cast iron pot is much quicker than electric or the coleman stove. Jim
