I just thought this would be very cool to share … I was just invited to help out with a video project for these guys and I think, if at ALL possible, I’m going to take them up on the opportunity. I’d love to learn more about this. I’ve done an unrealistic amount of lead casting in my youth doing figures, bullets, sinkers, etc. I’ve done some work with aluminum and brass, but never iron.
The opportunity to get into something like this would be amazing to me. I’m fascinated! Watch the video you’ll get the idea. They have a portal furnace that will bring this heavy metal to a molten state and a choreographed team to optimize every last drop of glowing liquid. So cool … I’m not even posting any preview pictures just jump in and watch this video!
