Justin Hacker, who was a regular at the Hive some years ago, alerted me that he has some casting equipment available. People showed some interest on Slack and in person, so I asked for some photos. I was out this week, so I missed any discussion that may have occurred on this, but I figured I’d write the message to open for people to discuss.
I’ll quote his description here:
“My living situation has changed a bit and I have some metal casting equipment that I don’t exactly need at the moment, I was wondering if you’d like to buy it. I have a mid sized foundry, unused only burned in, that will hold a #8 or #10 crucible, a #10 (I think) carbon crucible that’s brand new and never used, a mini foundry that I have used extensively for jewelry casting, and a full bucket of seasoned greensand casting. Does any of this sound interesting for you? I’m asking $100 for the lot, I need to make some space haha. Hope you’re well and still casting!”
“I snagged some pictures, although not of the sand itself. For whomever is interested, I’ll be giving one of the pails of sand (some of those are other things, it’ll be a heavy pail by itself). The small chip on the rim of the crucible was there from the factory and doesn’t affect it’s strength or usability, it’s purely cosmetic.”
Note that the foundries do not come with a torch.
