Great. That's what I get for poking fun at someone's spelling.

John: MDF ?

What is the name of the process, that the foundry uses ?
It's not sand casting, since they use plaster.

Yup. MDF. Will be plenty strong enough for 50 parts off.

Fred just calls it casting. Just casts into a plaster mold instead of a sand mold. Don't think it is anything special. I think he cures the plaster under vacuum to pull air bubbles out.

Patterns are all ready to go. Heading out to the foundry in 30 minutes to drop them off. Should have some idea of timing when I get back later this afternoon.....

Here are couple of shots of the finished patterns. The second coat of polyurethane is still wet on these....





Fred was much happy with these patterns. First part will be cast on Monday and assuming all goes good, they will be able to make 8-9 parts per day. Looking at May 3rd-ish to be done.

Guess I better start addressing the boxes....

My birthday is May 12th. So here's to hoping I get my wish.
Also, if #50 hasn't been requested for reserved part #, I'd like to request it.

Yup it's all casting

The plaster molds most times are made with a Refractory type plaster so the molds can withstand the hi temps without cracking when the molten metal hits it

It is also known as "Investment Casting" or "Lost Wax Casting" which is a wax part just like what you want the finished part to be, then dipped repeatably into a refractory type plaster until it is thick enough, then placed into an oven to melt the wax out as well as drive all the moisture out

Depending on the metal being cast, they may also put the plaster mold into a kiln to fire the plaster mold so it won't break when the metal is poured in

I have several parts I plan to cast for my V-Rod once I get that far along, hell I'm still trying to keep it running as my daily driver until I get the time to start doing the custom touches to it, my budget of $25 a month is hell just keeping it running, but I have been driving it over a year now with lots of problems


Those are some cool looking parts your making

Good news! I talked to Fred today and the first parts are done! He is in production mode making parts. As soon as he is done, I will blast down there and pick them up.

Almost there.....

Yup, it's just you. All the rest of us are calmly sitting out by our mailboxes, though repeatedly checking to make sure it wasn't delivered while taking a piss break.

Talked to Fred. He has about half a dozen pieces to go. I need to call him on Monday and confirm a pick-up of the parts on Tuesday afternoon.

Better start addressing the shipping boxes.
