Very Nice

With those patterns you can always make another round if the demand is there

I'd love to have a 36" by 36" by 6" CNC router just for cutting patterns similar to that, except in soft wood or styrofoam

Hell if I'd had any money I would have bought some foundry equipment from the foundry my friends just sold, they had an auction this past Tuesday, what I wanted, went way over my monthly toys allowance, I mean tool allowance, but they had a nice core making setup
That's the one thing I haven't done is to make any cores, that is other than cores for a roughed out bore, which I just used 2 pieces of 2 by 4 by whatever length I needed, drilled a hole thru the center of them after screwing together, I just mixed up my sand along with a bit of Molasses so it would dry up and stick together
