Could we (at least for the less exotic metals) use a source of metal (such as sheet metal, so purified scrap metal), shred it in the hammermill, or cut it manually into small enough pieces, then put it in a diy ballmill/beadmill? Would this possibly be cheaper?

What about some quality control of the metal? Radioactive metal or heavy metal contamination can be a problem. The contamination can also damage the whole production line. --Ruslan (talk) 09:40, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

For Radioactivity, User: Marcin is probably the expert (due to the whole fusion research degree(s) stuff), but I could wager that a simple Geiger–Müller Tube would work. For heavy metals I would say chemical assays (either once at the beginning of using the feedstock (low end), low end + random sampling (medium end) ), or use some sort of sort of Bulk Material Analyzer (High End)
