    That was intense, I have worked my entire career somehow avoiding green sand (LPPM, HPDC, and now no bake). Very cool to see how the jolt squeeze works, thanks for showing the entire cycle.

    Your website looks good, has a nice style to it

    I would suggest you post a link to the blower casting video, people here would like that one I am sure. That was some clean metal you poured, as nice as I've ever seen, you guys have some good foundry practices.

    Did you pour much 535, I am working with it now, never played with it before now, my past experience was all 356 or die cast alloys

    Cheers

    Nice information, I was interested in the zirconia/zirconium section, as I'm sure all of us are interested in different aspects. I'll be following your videos, as I am too interested in the How It's Made type stuff, and love to see different industrial processes as well as the automation and specialized processes that go into the mass production aspect of it. It might be interesting to compare a industrial factory's process to a DIY backyard type process, an idea for future videos? In any case, thank you for sharing. I wanted to ask to borrow that hammer pattern but I lack the capactiy to pour it lol! Great job on the video and editing, I see some camera rails in your future, probably even a video on how to make them (I can hope right? lol

    Amazing work Garen!
    And very nice website!

    I see that you have planned a print to cast section about 3d printing and casting, very interesting (I'm actually working a lot with 3d printing and I want to experiment with 3d printing and casting!).
    I'll make sure to visit your website every now and then to check!

    Ya this is an old video, 7 or 8 years now. Never poured 535 but i know it's a maganium secondary alloy. We only pour 319, 713 and 356. Sometimes zinc permanent molds and Almag every once and awhile.

    Oh ya, I'll be trying to compare a lot of DIY stuff to industrial. Not this forums cup of tea but I'm going to be making some carbon fiber reinforced longboards via vacuum bagging and I'm gonna visit a thermoplastic company here in muncie to compare the two processes. My 3D printer should be in in 2 weeks and I'll be redoing my corebox for the thor hammer and recasting it as well. I also want to make a motorized camera slider but that's on the backburner right now.
