  1. Ball and Plow Muller for Green Sand

    Here is a quick pictorial of my muller build.

    It's a great feeling to look at a pile of scrap and know it will soon be an essential machine in your foundry :twisted:

    33 gal air tank and some various stuffs. 1750 rpm motor, 30/1 gear reduction...


    Main sub-frame to support the drum.

  2. almost flasks

    Well that's just a bunch of boxes I made this weekend, made me thinking on building flasks ( as soon as I get some petrobond ) .The disc sander was very helpful but to get a flush cut on the dowels, I also used a scraper. A linseed oil coat and that's done. Actually I needed a pair of boxes for the bathroom but once everything is set it's not a big deal to make a few more.

  3. square for straight cutting

    Straight cutting with a hacksaw requires some practice. I made this simple square to speed up the cutting process. It's some kind of carpenter square. My tip was to bolt the square before to weld, 90 guaranteed. Still need some finishing.



    Just clamp it on the vice and cut.The cut is reasonably accurate, a quick touch up with a file (or the sander...) and you're done. :wink:

  4. poor man's ring roller

    I made a very simple ring roller.

    and voila!

    A ring made out of a one meter flat bar (2mm )in a few minutes.The tricky part was to weld the joint.
