The Excellent Hobby Of Metal Casting
It doesn't take a fortune to get started with metal casting. With enough imagination, there isn't much that you wouldn't be able to build. All it takes is some determination to get set up properly and safely, and anything is possible. Even from the most modest of back yard foundries, you can achieve quality work with just a little experience.
This is very same process that they make your car's engine, that ring on your finger, or your expensive wrenches in that tool box in the garage. Why pay some one else to do it when you could do it yourself?
Imagine the thrill of showing everyone you know that:
-Special motorcycle intake box that you cast and polished
-Necklace charm that you made and set the stones
-Hand made cabinet drawer pulls that you sand casting
-Tool that you always needed but no one ever made
-Fixing that broken trim piece on your car
What about all of the things that sculptors do with bronze and aluminum?
For that matter, melting down your own pop cans and car wheels for the aluminum and becoming your own recycle station.
