Hello turners. Can you use a pressure cooker to cast Alumilite resis at 40 psi. Or do you need a paint pot?

I would not trust a pressure cooker with 40 psi of compressed air in it.  Thats not what its designed for and the type of seal the lid makes could make a spectacular explosion.  Atleast a paint pot is designed to handle compressed air even though the use is not what it was made for.

Get a paint pot, they are cheap enough.
