    Now Kelly, here is a thought .... do a set in iron with lost foam ... just for fun. ;-) I have a couple windmill gears that I would SOMEDAY like to make in iron, and about the only way to do it would be lost foam.

    Unfortunately I've misplaced my big boy britches so iron will have to wait. Besides, I've started so many projects just for fun it's keeping me from completing the ones I started with purpose!

    .....But I agree, great process for one-offs in most any common casting metal.

    Best,
