There will be a F.I.R.E. Exhibition at the Metal Museum May 16th - May 19th. I had the Metal Museum folks over a few months ago to demonstrate crucible iron melting, and they had not seen that before (they do cupolette iron melts), and so they asked me to do a demonstration at their FIRE event. I will be an unofficial guest demonstrator. The folks at the Metal Museum have been extremely helpful in showing me all their foundry techniques, especially their bound sand molding process, so I really owe them. I will have to transport the new furnace, but luckily it is not that heavy; probably under 200 lbs total. And if nothing else, this will give me an opportunity to get caught up with some iron castings, such as bearing caps, windmill gears, etc, if I don't get to that before the exhibit. It should be fun. Hopefully I won't drop the crucible or something, but those folks are use to slinging iron all over the place when they tap the cupolette, so no big deal. https://www.metalmuseum.org/fire Here are a couple of iron pours done at the Metal Museum a few years ago. Edit: I was talking to the guy who did the seminar on backyard casting at the NAMES show the other day, and said they use to do an aluminum demonstration at NAMES outside the building, but he was all nervous about how dangerous it was. I told him that he would have a heart attack if he saw how much iron the Metal Museum people sling around on a regular basis. Iron pours are not for the faint of heart. .
