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!

Yes, I had a nice '82 Honda Silverwing.  At least it was nice until a stupid half grown German Shepherd tried to make me stop.  Drilled him square and killed his ass outright.  Damn near killed me too.  Tried fixing up my bike after that, but moved to Alaska and storage got to be a problem.  Had to sell it to some guy who wanted to cut it all apart and make some half-assed car out of it.

Nice thing about being a Molder was right after I got out, I entered a Sand Castle contest down on the Oregon coast.  I showed them lubbers how sand can be stacked up real high and not fall down.  I made a Sand Castle with one inch thick walls...three feet high.  NO wires or fancy sand mixtures.

LOTS of people were asking, "How did you DO that????"  Yeah.  I took first place.
