  • I've seen the and castings.  They are cool.  You'd have to be careful about how wet the ground is.

  • I kind of dig the ant colonies poured aluminum trees, anyone done it ? You can see how on you tube.

  • All we need now is a pile of sand and a few beers...Keep the goddamn cats out of it! 

  • I found a group on Facebook for "Hobby Metal Casting".  I see some pretty good ideas on there and some good laughs, too.  Seems to be a lot of people out there trying their hand at the black magic of sand castles :)

  • Hey, Guys and Gals! Glad to see so many of us still drawing breath and active. Didn't know that this site was here. Really miss the Foundry work, but I guess it's kinda hard when the rate was abolished. Bummer. Lots of back yard melting going on out there, send suggestions and they will appreciate it. Later  all!

Posablly seeing about starting up a navy molders museum?

I know they dismissed our rate back in 1997. I would hope there are enough of us left to possably  get together and see about creating a museum somewhere  here in the states to preserve our long history and heritage that we all have shared as Molders. Any of you out there please give me a response if you read this Discussion.                                      Thanks.
