38322Gingery mill: was Re: [hobbicast] Re: PetroBond Bentone 34
- Jan 2, 2008Hello Dave,
I built the mill a few years ago. I strongly suggest to use ZA12
instead of aluminum for the mill castings. Might cost a little more
though as ZA12 is hard to find in scrap form. The advantage is ZA12
dampens vibrations much like cast iron does but melts at a much lower
temperature than cast iron.
