    Default New to this forum

    Good morning to all

    I am seeking information on casting.

    Call me a novice, I only have had experience as an apprentice many years ago watching patterns being made and help in painting them for the endeavour replica when it was being built.
    Im a marine engineer now and wish to make some parts that cannot be aquired for some restoration projects.
    In my collection of books I have a literature on casting etc, and so I seek help now in the design of a waste oil burner that I plan to buy and incorporate into the furnace.
    Dimensions and limitations of my ambitions are welcome.

    I wish to cast iron and bronze brass and have fire bricks to start including metal for fabrication.
    The castings on some parts will have to to be good finish to minimize machining and in terms of size. From grams and up too 20 kilo
    Which I will contract out.
    It would ideal for me to have it on a sturdy wheel system to move in and out.
    To push under a gantry to lift the crucible if need be.

    Perth based seeking help from those who have been doing this for a while when someone has the time.

    If your also perth based, im willing to come meet you at some stage.

    Regards

    Nick

    Hi Nick and Welcome to a TOP FORUM.
    If possiible could you change your location to a town or suburb please.
    The reason being that we have a lot of members on here that are only too willing to help, some will see your location and say if he can't be bothered puting in a proper location, I can't be bothered helping. Or someone may be in a Suburb close to you and is able to help, IF they know where you are.
    Regards,
    Kryn
