  • Interesting figures. A fifty pound charge in a properly designed gas heated casting furnace, with an up to the minute burner, would take twenty-five to thirty minutes. And your electric rates may be straight out of nineteen sixty, but electric rates for home owners in Seattle is right out of hell; it's progressive, in the worst possible way! !!! ----- Original Message ----- From...

  • Cary, My advice is not to allow the shortcomings of commercial enterprises to blight your own bright plans. Furthermore, Carl's response discussing his plans to build a special crucible carrier, which will allow him to convey and accurately pour large loads, can be modified to become a ladle; such a tool would perfectly complement a tilting furnace. Or, you could use it, as he...
