|Gingery lathe castings
Here I will show some castings I made for the Gingery lathe. It is a
slow process to make the patterns.
Here is a pattern I made for a half 6" pulley and the resulting
cavity in sand ready to cast.
And here it is after casting. I worried a bit because the sprue did
not fill completely.
The aluminium was not too hot and solidified quite fast. It's a big part.
Here it is in close-up. The details are
pretty good, but I have some sand inclusion.
I must admit the sand was a bit on the dry side and there was not enough metal.
