I purchased your
3-Vol book and received the bonus titles yesterday. I'm
finding 'Metal Casting Made Easy' is: Well laid
out, easy to follow. And has good
informative photo's. Thanks and well done; I'm
looking forward to getting set up to do some casting.
Thank you for the
foundry ebooks. I´m not only reading your ebook material,
but studying it with great care &
detail. It´s very interesting, and is a delight
to read and discover things which were unknown. I´m now
planning my future activities in metal casting, beginning
with the furnace.
Thank you again and good
I am thoroughly enjoying reading your
books. The main reason I bought the package was for the
Gyratoy riddle. I have been hobby casting for 2 -3 years
now, and still learning. One of the odious tasks is
tempering the sand, hence the desire for the riddle. Love
the hobby, and my goal is to build a traction engine, some
of the parts for which I have already cast. But I have a
lot of other tooling to build first. So casting is
an integral part of my tooling up program. Thanks again
for your books, they provide an
excellent source of information all in the

I enjoyed foundy when I was in
High School, and now my son has shown some interest in it.
It's been about 15 years since I have done it, your web
site has been an exciting refresher
course, and now with your ebooks it will help me
pass the experience on to him.
Thank you. Mike
Burks. North Texas,
|Colin. Thanks for taking
the time to put this collection of very useful
infor-mation together. "I'm sure it will be invaluable in
my quest to do some home foundry work". I do Jeep
restoration as a hobby. Some of the models just
don't have parts available any more. That is the root of
my interest. I have a small machine shop and enjoy doing
the work myself. Regards, James H Simpson (Jim)
I have found the ebooks
extremely useful. They are just what I needed. I
originally started knowing nothing about metal casting.
All I knew was that it involved sand as the moulding
medium. The books are easy to read. I thought that the
pictures could have been larger and therefore clearer, but
I realised that would make the file a lot more memory
hungry, and take con-siderably longer to download. I have
an adsl connection, but I realise that many other people
above, I am extremely pleased with the ebooks. They are
ideal for the beginner as they give a
compre-hensive 'grounding' and I think
that they were worth every penny (cent, centime,
pfennig,... or what-ever currency). You are prov-iding a
system i.e. the ebooks are fully sup-ported with a
technical information and advice service.
It's almost like a course of
As a beginner I wanted a
source of information that would give me all I needed to
know to get started in metal casting. "In fact I found
more". I found information that is easy to understand, to
enable me to build my own equipment, to start make my own
castings, and with it an ongoing source of technical
information and advice. I have always found you very
helpful, approachable and friendly, and I think that you
are doing a thoroughly good job and I wish you every

I must say that I
found the Gates and Risers ebook to be an
indespensable reference. By having that material
avaliable. I was able to enjoy a "First Time Go" (meaning
my first pour was suc cessful). Though my first casting
was rather simple "Gates and Risers" will help insure that
my efforts will not be wasted no matter what part I set
out to fabricate.

I have spent the best
part of my weekend trying to help my father with an .exe
type of e-book he was given for Christmas; I must
congratulate you for using PDFs, and the
functionality they offer to the user. My dad has an ebook
file created by ****labs which locks the files as images
inside a browser based viewer. All well and good, except
the print functionality is so pathetic that the only print
function available prints each page the size of playing
cards (one per page).
Thank you for
producing PDF ebooks, which are "easy to read"
using acrobat reader, instead of resorting to the ebook
pub-lishing programs used by other authors. The book my
father has is related to vintage and veteran motorcycles,
and the ebook was published using software from

and I'm very, very thankful that your books aren't filled
with those problems.

muck-arounder", I print out the pages that I can't
manipulate "on screen" for a full understanding of the
articles. At this stage, I am in the process of gathering
components for the foundry, and by the end of this month
it will be up and running.
Things like the
gyratory riddle have been adapted to what
is available in my junk pile, and the metal cope
and drag have been adapted to what was available
locally but using the same principles as
in the ebooks. I've had a long look at
other sites for the past year, but it's great to have a
local source, listing local suppliers and using
terminology that I and local suppliers

|Love Your Books! Great Advice!
Good Stuff, All of
I hope all is well in your part
of the world. Over the holidays, I had some time to
complete reading of the CD Rom, and wanted to
thank you again. It was most
interesting reading and I am sure I will be able
to apply it as I progress in this hobby.

|Colin Croucher, an Aussie has
published an ebook on metal casting which you may want.
Many of you know me from my casting videos. Having bought
Colin's E book out of curiosity and skim read it, I can
say that he has done a great job. He goes in to fine
detail and much more than I have time to explain in a
video. So get and download
the ebook. I'm an experienced metal caster so I
didn't learna all that much, but it
is the absolute must have
for the beginner and intermediate caster.|
I've known Colin in Es, for years back when we had
around 50 members on hobbicast and he ask me
questions. He has come a long way in his casting
experience, and his ebook
is worth the buy. And for the skeptics, no, I
don't know Colin personally and he didn't ask for my

Last summer I purchased
your foundry ebooks. I have since moved out of the
city and into the country where my wife and I have
retired, during the move my computer was damaged. I cannot
retrieve any of my ebook files. Would it be possible that
you could verify that I did indeed purchase the ebook and
send me the book over again? In case it makes a
difference, my old email address was; **net. and my
mailing address was ** Manitoba, Canada. If my request is
not able to be acted upon, I will order the ebook again
upon hearing from you. Thanks for any help you can offer.
