              Home metal casting is often perceived as a daunting task for a home metalworker to undertake. However, foundry work is surprisingly easy and affordable, and well within the capabilities of even a modest home shop. From material and equipment considerations to pattern and mold mak...ing, B. Terry Aspin provides the knowledge required for that first pour. --George Bulliss, The Home Shop Machinist magazine The process of casting metal in a sand mold, a craft which has been practiced for centuries, is actually very simple. This handy book will show you how. Inside you'll find a wealth of useful information on materials and techniques, pattern-making, molding boxes, cores and core-boxes, and melting metals. Locomotive cylinders and wheels are examined in depth for model engineers. This book also offers a design for building an outdoor solid-fuel furnace, suitable for small-scale commercial work. Each stage and subject is covered in detail so that even beginners can undertake casting with confidence. Backyard Foundry for Home Machinists is essential reading for anyone interested in getting started in foundry or casting work.
