    I need to melt some metal to a free-flowing liquid state

    but it can't be weakened at all in the process- it must remain as strong and able to carry a load as in its tempered solid form throughout the melting process


    anyone know how I can achieve this?

    The process is called quenching...

    this 'quenching' will give me a liquid that will bear a load as well as the metall wood in its solid, tempered form?

    I think you should reconsider. You might burn yourself.

    I thought you meant after word not while it was still liquid. As far as I know what you are attempting is not possible with any metal that I am aware of. And wood burns way before it melts. The only thing I know of that might fit that description is spider silk and I don't begin to know enough about that compoud to even hazard a guess about whether it is liquid or solid or some peculiar item that is essentially both and yet neither. You might find something if you look into the sciences dealing with bullet proof materials but it almost certainly won't be metal.

    Eots, you lied to me again

    Is it possible for wood to melt? I don't think so.
