Well I will be moving to Tennessee in two weeks. Currently I am in Orange County California. I started becoming interested in aluminum casting a year ago while learning to build my own vintage Honda motorcycle. I found an article that explained how they created the engines by Sandcast method and figured why not continue to make parts in that way. Not knowing where to start, I found a few resources from Youtube and Ebay that helped me to put together a hobby foundry and off I went. through this last year without a job due to the pandemic, I have gone through a lot of trial and error to work out the bugs with each of my pieces that I wanted to make. I have had a few successes and many failures but each time I get closer. I cannot remember how exactly I found this forum but I am glad I have found it so I can progress further in this craft and keep making better and successful castings the first time because in honesty these sand molds get freaking heavy!
