Derek Posted February 8, 2008 Share Posted February 8, 2008 Well I finally got some time to get over the foundry to pour the first manifold. If you are new and need to come up to speed here's a link to the design stage http://forums.hybridz.org/showthread.php?t=121021 And a link to the pattern making http://forums.hybridz.org/showthread.php?t=121478 Here is the core assembly all glued together with the stainless tubes and the bronze bushings in place This is the pattern with the flask around it. Ramming the sand This is the drag or bottom of the mold with the pattern removed Setting the core. Cores makes castings hollow. We decided to do a dual pour. Don't try this at home! I'm running the camera by the way. The moment of truth. I'm really happy with this I ran out of time but tomorrow I'll shake out the cores and post a few more pics of the casting.
