Adventures in Aluminum Casting! with Pepas Engines

castingThousands of DIY’ers have built small furnaces for melting and casting aluminum, and I’ve joined the fray!  My process starts with cutting out foam pieces on the ShopBot, casting them in aluminum using the lost foam process, and then finish machining them on the TechShop mill and lathe.  My current project is casting pieces for a small steam engine.  I have no idea what I’m doing and am loving every minute of it!  Come check out my rig, ask questions and get inspired!
