I'm sixteen, and an experienced foundryman. I've worked in many foundries, but only built this one.

http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-foundry-and-sand-cast-aluminum/

My furnace is... not up to par (cough-*gay*-cough). I know how to (and have) cast aluminum, brass (not bronze), and iron, but have never personally built a foundry "hardcore" enough to take on anything with a higher melting point than aluminum.

Within the next few months though I will have a waste-oil foundry capable of melting aluminum and brass (not iron though) and I'll need some ideas for stuff to cast.

I've always enjoyed complicated machines and hidden weapons and a search for Hidden Blade (AC style) schematics brought me here.

While my main focus is weapons, I also want to make plate armor, and if anyone has anything they want to see made (weapons or armor), now would be the time to suggest it.

Welcome,
glad to see you here,

Very interesting hobby, or job . . . .
I never melted and cast anything bigger then a few grams,
strictly acetylene torch and a cast iron 5 inch frypan bullet melter.
I cast brass and lead/pewter, or my own version of german silver.
but I can't cast copper, it turns into a weird green white coral like plant growth.
for a while I cast lead sinkers on fishhooks,
but when I wanted silver or nickel, I gave a wax to my brother at the jewelers.

My brother Jeff cast big stuff in college, it was the schools melter.
aluminum or bronze figures and green sand molds.
his aluminum figures look weird because aluminum shrinks when it cools.
all of the chests and backs of the figures went concave.
But the bronze stuff came out nice.
Then he did precious metal spin casting at a jewelers for 10 years.

I saw a lot of refinery candle mold casting where i worked.
We had electric induction tilting crucibles, some open air, some in vacuum chambers.

I once designed a big natural gas fired mold preheat table,
and I once had to inspect cast metal parts for cold cast errors, (cracks)
but it was strictly a checkpoint, before sending casting to be machined.
it's not like I have any special training, you don't want to waste time machining a bad casting.
