Greensand Casting Techniques from David Gingery's Workshop 45 mins DVD
Two good semi-professional films for those of you interested in doing your own casting. In the first, noted author Dave Gingery goes through the basics of green sand moulding - the sand mix, tools required etc and then gives a practical demonstration of the art, moulding and pouring a casting for a flywheel. You also see his famous gas fired crucible furnace, and some of the workshop equipment and models featured in his books. The second film, with Dave’s pupil John Dilsaver, deals with how to do the moulds for awkward items and covers complex shapes, book moulds, greensand cores, matchplate patterns etc. This film is only about moulding - if you want the information on tools, sand mixes etc, you need the first one.
