    I found this thread on another forum i frequent and thought it may be of use or at the least a interesting well written read for some here.

    VWvortex Forums: The complete guide on casting parts

    It covers everything from a home built furnace to mold and plug making.

    Thanks for the link Robert. I once was saving all of my beer cans. Planned on melting them down to cast a crankcase for a small radial engine I thought I could build. Now that weeks seem to go by like days, it's all I can do to make decent progress on my biplane. No engines from scratch from me.
    I am interested in casting small parts though. Cool link, thanks!
