RE: Aluminum Forge
Big Grin Very Cool, So many cool projects to be made. do you plan on lost foam or green sand?

It you need a known raw Aluminum for projects A Local Spokane guy sells 356 Aluminum ingots on Ebay he is also on the Alloy avenue forums.

I am not affiliated with him. just passing on info. So I hope a link to his ebay is okay.

If you want to try making some K-Bond Molding sand. http://www.foundry.ray-vin.com/k-bond/k-bond.htm

I have some of the hard to find Bentone 34 ( not much but good for a test batch ) I would be happy to donate. just let me know where to send it. Smile

RE: Aluminum Forge
That is a great project. I work with some large gas forges and have been talking about making a small one for home. Where did you get the refractory cement? I have been planning on coming by on a Wednesday but have been busy the last few weeks.
