From Basic To
Advanced Metal Casting.
Most of the things you will do in your hobby foundry
will most likely be basic stuff, but once you gain
experience and confidence in pattern making & metal
casting you will begin to get very creative and start to build
some great projects, a featured article in the Hot Metal
Ezine presented photographs and an article about a chap whose
name is Mike who lives in Kalgoorlie Western
Mike has embarked on a project to manufacture
his own aero engine, the project includes designing & making
the patterns and pouring all of the castings, and then machining
Now we are not suggesting that you will want to
make your own aero engine, but we are showing you this as an
example of what can be achieved when you put your mind to
Crankcase & cylinder barrel castings, hard to imagine
they have been home made isn't
The engine now taking shape,
awesome engineering project.
There much to learn about metal casting, and It is
best not to be too ambitious when starting out, be eager to learn,
but take it slowly...the old saying that you have to "crawl
before you walk" is so true. Too many newbies want to cast
something complicated first off.... which generally leads to
failure, and loss of interest in the hobby because they dont
understand why they failed. If you begin with simple projects, you
will build a solid foundation of skills and methods which will
enable you to tackle more complex projects with confidence and
skill in the future
