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 ;-)

Cope and Drag casting project

This is just a follow up post for my aluminum foundry flask casting progress.
The first four parts of my flask cope are casted, at this stage I have to cast four more parts for the drag part. I made a video of the molten aluminum pouring process and the sand mould shake-out.


  1. If you are installing a furnace in a home that has not previously had a furnace, installing the ductwork and registers will probably be the most labor-intensive portion of the job. Plan the layout of the ductwork carefully, so that air returns and heat registers are not covered by furniture.

    1. Thank you for that insight.


Thanks for your Donations ;-)
