- Mar 4, 2005I have to agree with you, GTO. If Zamak was close to cast iron, I'm sure
they would have made the bed (not the ways), as well as other large
parts out of it.
My knowledge of ZAMAK was derived from reading about it in model
railroad magazines. Lot's of mid 20th century era model loco parts were
made of the stuff, and some of it would crumble in the box.
The name came from the composition of the alloy
