    Hoping to pour second side and column front later this week when weather warms up. Currently -20C and too cold for propane at high rate. Should be above freezing by friday. For the bearing housing i plan to go lost foam for the ease of a hollow without a core. Plan on using ball bearings instead of bushings. Keep on keeping on boys

    I have not cast in about a year. Last time I did anything was to melt a car wheel a friend gave me. Just built a fire in 1/3 of a drum and threw it in. Let it melt out the bottom. The puddle is still waiting for me to re-melt into muffins. I still have my greensand and some petrobond, and a few things I want to cast. Motivation and get up and go are missing lately. Have had a few health problems.

    Better finish paying more attention to ramming. I think my sand is on the dry side as many particles come free while brushing talcum powder around. No fallout though and decent finish

    Tempered the sand as soon as it was cool enough to handle. Checked it today and it is in much better condition. Ready for molding!
