no kitty litter please :)
@ david: Alternatives to petrobond are welcome, we just need to keep materials separate. the drier sound interesting, palease inquire as to what material you would use that for. resin bonded sand is where we want to go, and eventually. ceramic shell, baby steps first.
@kevin, absolutely. ill be there around 5:30-6 to assess
@tom, no need to dedicate, for mulling sands. would need to assess if we would use for a resin bonded sand mixer as residue would stick to the tines
with the petrobond, i willq be istructing how to make a 1-off out of of foam, and then casting on e foam. as we evolve the intest and skill sets, we will delve into bigger and better processes.
thanks forthe input.
btw, tonight will be casting ingots ifall goes as planned
@ jason: gracias
