Recently we received an email from one of our clients in the USA… This is what he had to say;

“This casting thing has taken off huge for me. I get more and more orders every day.  I recently sold and delivered a set of my crank cases to your country Australia. So now I’m officially international. LOL. My mold making keeps getting better and my casting and machining abilitys also”.

“I couldn’t have done this with out your guidance and inspiration Col. Thanks so much”.

“I’ve seriously out grown my garage, but continue to trip over my piles and piles of stuff.  Hope to expand soon and get some much needed room. My furnace continues to work flawless”.

    wondering what you suggest as a good all around flux for aluminum? what do you use for brass or bronze? I have been using boric acid for most of my casts of bronze over the years – but would like to hear what you do. thanks

    • admincol says:

      A good aluminium flux that we use is Foseco Coveral11, for degassing the aluminum melt you cant go past Nitril C19 or C10 it might be called now. There are three things you can use for a flux when melting Bronze.
      Crushed or powdered glass. (From an old bottle, but dangerous job to crush glass) Borax also works well. Crushed charcoal will provide a good anti oxidant coverage for the melt. But the best would have to be Foseco’s Cuprex flux, which is good for all copper based metals.


  4. Cary Brief says:

    been reading about fluxes – crushed glass and washing soda for copper (think it works for brass and bronze) I used to use borax for brass and it always worked good. what about for Aluminum – is borax good for that too?
