Tend furnaces and ladle molten metal into molds.

What does a Lead Ingot Molder do?

Tends furnace to melt lead-antimony pigs and scrap, and ladles molten metal into molds: Slides pigs into furnace pot, allowing oil fumes to burn off melting metal to avoid accumulation of explosive oil vapor-air mixture. Stirs molten metal, skims dross from surface, and ladles metal into ingot molds. Turns valves to control flow of coolant water to molds. Inverts molds, when metal is solidified, and knocks ingots loose.
