Brand new paperback. 80 pages. This is the first book in Gingery's series showing you how to build a complete metal working shop from scrap for almost nothing. You must have the foundry setup in order to build the lathe, milling machine and other tools described in each of the other books. Castings make strong and precise machine tool components. You'd go broke buying the castings, if they were available, but you can make them for almost nothing in your own foundry.
If you can build a sand castle or make a mud pie you can make a sand mold to produce castings for your metal shop projects. It is really cheap and easy with a simple solid fuel furnace. Here are plans to build the melting furnace and instructions for basic pattern making and molding to get your shop project underway. Charcoal is the fuel and aluminum and zinc alloys are the metals to cast. None of the pulsation or roar associated with gas fired furnaces. Build your own molding bench and flasks. Make your own melting pots and most of the simple tools required. Discover how cheap and easy it is. Even if you already have a lathe and other equipment this simple foundry setup will greatly expand the capacity of your shop by providing you with a supply of cheap castings for your projects. Discover why so many shop hands say that metal casting has opened a whole new world of shop experience. Heavily illustrated with many photos that will show you step-by-step how to build a foundry.
