Wow, that came out great! I'm amazed at the text definition from a home sand cast part. Just awesome!

This is very much a back yard project, fun to see industrialized processes can be replicated this way.


Back Yard Project...I think few are sand casting parts (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) Most definitely next level here. I'm sure the next questions will be are you willing to produce more of those.

Love it, you are rocking it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)


Not any plans of making any more of these, quite time consuming. I think they would be expensive in small scale production. Appreciate your feedback (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

A little spin off series on the home made hockey puck project. Forum member @Miguel K R has given it a try based on my 3D-models, and even taken it a notch up with magnesium etched tool for the leather stamp. Fun to see my project can inspire others (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

A quick update before the weekend. Here are some pictures of the fabrication of the GT-engine lid. I initially bought the mesh typically used in period, but thought it was a bit rough, so I made my own iterpretation based on the original lid and mesh.

Attached Image
The idea was to merge two lids into one.

Attached Image
Also had to add some holes in the crossmember

Attached Image
The near finished product. some battle scars in the mesh..

Attached Image
Good thing I had some extra mesh.

Attached Image
And some precision mig welding (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif)

Attached Image
More or less finished.

Have a nice weekend! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/bye1.gif)

Excellent work, and a nice variation on the GT lid theme. Many folks delete the oblique crossmember, but your added lightness approach works well and looks racy!

And the precision MIG welding - wow. Keep the posts coming,
