newbie needs advise and direction
- I am attempting to cast some small metal parts. they would be appx 1" x
1" have a small bezel edge and a loop at top. Kindof like a tray but
for a pendant. I did post a pic of a polymer clay model of what I am
talking about here: www.crafterscafe.com/images/sample_bezel.jpg
Please not this it not to quality standards I just wanted to give a
I started looking for a foundry to cast these for me but no luck - even
in Maryland. So I started looking into doing this myself. I am an
artist so this isn't a far stretch. However, I am getting all kinds of
info from a variety of sources.
One tells me to green sand cast and another says to use a spincast
setup. I would need production quantities (200 of 5 styles to start) so
if my research is going well I am thinking the spincast is what I need.
Next step would be what equipment would I need, need being the important
word here, I can always get something with bells and whistles in the
future if all works out.
Problem is I am not familiar with brands, quality, who to stay away
Any recommendations would be appreciated here.
