Moving up from AL to Silicon Bronze
- It still took a long time to melt the bronze, but the turtle turned out pretty well for my first bronze case, and my second sand cast of anything.

- Very very nice Dave. Now you really have the casting virus.
Hint: Ramming the sand a little harder may help reduce the flash. Also,
sometimes it help to press the sand down very slightly around the edge
of the pattern before you rap it. If your using green sand, dampen to
edge of the sand around the pattern before rapping also helps. Don't get
it wet- dampen only.

- This is a pic of the turtle once it's been cleaned up a little.
It's about 3.5" long
