SAND-CASTING: For those of you who love the Unnecessary

I doubt any more than 1% of DIY Home Hobbyist’s out there would care to tackle adding this to their skill set and resource network, but, it’s rad so enjoy!

Cool. I have been studying how to cast things with aluminum. I have an idea for electric side mirrors for our old A-bodies plus some Art Deco switch and socket plates for the house.

Made a giant (8") C-clamp in shop class in HS via sand casting. I even turned the threaded portion in a lathe. I used that sucker for a decade, every day until I finally snapped it.

It's cool stuff!

I was debating on doing this exact same thing to make some one of air cleaner lids... for myself.

But have not dug much further yet.

Thumbs up

Very Informative!!! Thank You.

This WAS my favorite Sand Casting video I had seen...

But now you have helped everyone to be able to understand HOW to do it ourselves.

There is alot more steps to making a cast product then one would think.
