Any of you guys casting your own parts? What is your green sand mix? What type of furnace you using? what you using for fuel? How successful have you been? I did some casting with my Dad when I was a kid and also in high school. Back in the day it was common to make your own parts by casting. I wish I'd kept all of my Dad's and Granddad's sand casting tools now. Now I'll have to build a furnace probably charcoal fired and forced air feed. make a batch of green sand crucible to hold the metal in for melting and lifting tools for pouring the metal and a flask,sand ramming tools, sand box, sifters, the list goes on and on. If you've ever poured metal its a hoot to do.
