This is my on-line record of learning to cast Metal. Ultimately I want to learn to cast bronze hands.But I'm going to start with Aluminium, and work my way up.

I got the name from a warning I read on one of the Groups. It read somewhere along the lines of "Casting is perfectly safe, just so long as you remember that you are handling a small cup of Hell".

Really it was a toss up between that and a second warning, which warned that liquid aluminium was not just hot enough to scald you, it was hot enough to vaporise skin and muscle.

Just because I've done something here, and lived to tell the tale, it does not mean that this is a good way to do it, or a safe way to do it.

I'm not a professional metal worker. This is not a set of instructions. If you want to play with hot metal, your best bet it to go do a course somewhere.
