      Jim:There is a guy, Allen(I may have the spelling wrong) in Fontana. It has been more than a year since I talked to him. At the time he hadn't built a furnace. Mine isn't finished but hopefully will be soon. I would think there might be a few more in the whole Los Angeles area but I don't recall anybody posting. Carl

      Glad to know that there is someone else in the neighborhood casting in
      the back yard, and like the boys in Washington are conspiring to do, it
      would be good to have a foundry day at someone's place. I heard on one
      of the groups that there is someone else in the Fontana area, too, but
      haven't talked with him yet... Anybody else in the area?

A while back I think you said you needed some better quality scrap for casting. I have a lot of cast aluminum. I also have a 5 gallon bucket of VW valve guides. I believe the OEM ones are a brass alloy and the aftermarket ones are a silicone bronze alloy. I'll sell it for the same price the recyclers are paying me if you need anything. There is also some copper but I have been holding that hoping the price will go back up. Thanks Carl
