Welcome to my FlamingFurnace, backyard metal casting blog.

Hi everyone, I mainly focus on metal casting projects using recycled scrap aluminum and other accessories in the pattern creations.
Aluminum is a very versatile material and I would like to promote the awareness of aluminum recycling via different metal casting projects.

Feel free to check my YouTube channel where I provide detailed explanations, tips & tutorials for best backyard aluminum casting methods, homemade foundry equipment & of course the importance of safety when working with molten aluminum.

So remember recycle and Enjoy my blog ;-)

Casting a new foundry flask (Part II)

Yesterday I casted the second pattern of my new aluminum foundry flask. The first attempt of the sand moulding failed. I had to improve the angle/draft around the patterns handle section. After using more filler, sanding it and then finishing with a coat of varnish.
The angle filler adjustment did the job and the sand mould second attempt was very good. I used again my homemade green sand and the aluminum casting was satisfactory.
