Title: Crucible camera pouring cast iron.
Post by: ironman on September 15, 2016, 08:49:38 PM
Hi everyone.

I have always wanted to mount a camera on my pouring trolley but because getting someone with good camera skills when I need them can be difficult. It turned out so well I wished I had done this a lot earlier. Really great results can be expected using cheap green sand, the plaques came out excellent in cast iron. Have a look at the video.

Thanks Ironman, that camera mount worked well. Sure beats some videos where the camera is sprayed around like a garden hose.
   Your castings turned out super too. As a resident of the mentioned state, Why your interest on the old Slow Easy Comfortable mob?
  Ah Memories.

I always enjoy your videos thanks for showing us. I haven't  done any casting this year yet been busy redoing the garage. One of the things I want in it is a fume hood so I can do some casting in the winter or at least thats the plan!

Thank you for looking at the video. I can't wait to start painting the big plaque. It is amazing how a coat of paint transforms a plain looking casting into something really great.
