Backyard Metalcasting

It doesn’t take a fortune to get started, and with enough imagination, there isn’t much that you couldn’t build.

I’m talking about metal casting.

Yeah, the same process that they make you car’s engine out of, or that ring on your finger, or your expensive wrenches in that tool box in the garage.

Imagine the thrill of showing off that set of heat treated box end wrenches that you built yourself.

Or all of the things that you sculptors could do with bronze and aluminum.

For that matter, melting down your own pop cans for the aluminum and becoming a station of recycling things yourself.

Am I waking up your imagination yet?

Visit my ever expanding page at Squidoo for even more of this awesome, ancient, and fascinating hobby, that you could easily turn into a second business!
