    YouTube Winners in Metal Casting

    Ahh YouTube.... It can a be a great source of information.... and Disinformation! Here's a place to post all those funny, scary and odd adventures in Metal Casting! Sometimes watching funny failures and scary close calls can be educational too.
    I'll kick it off with a couple funny ones I've found. AND DO NOT TRY TO DUPLICATE ANY OF THESE!

    Meet the Lawnmower foundry


    And Who could forget making "bronze" in a 3dollar homer bucket??

    I think this is a great example of a steam explosion and its consequences. These were students in a lab supervised by a teacher using some PPE, novices take note.

    I'm so predictable! :0(
    Especially since I just came home and sat down from a run to the place where I get the old extinguisher bottles to knock up some more burners. They are my favourite Burner Build foundation.
