I get many emails from people that are interested in creating aluminum replica's from another objects.
I got a request from one particular visitor who wanted to create a replica of a plastic paintball gun handle into an aluminum handle. I really enjoyed creating this part. The sand molding process was very basic and it was very easy to polish the finished product.
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 ;-)

This is just a few more images of another electrolysis de-rusting session. I found this pipe wrench in a metal recycle bin and it looks like his former owner was a bit intimidated by the rusty look. Anyway after leaving the wrench in a derusting electrolysis bath over night the wrench is as good as new;-)
