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 ;-)

Sand casting paintball handle

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.

Electrolysis rust removal for a rusty pipe wrench

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;-)
