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.
