Summary and Info
The Sand Casting Manual, Volume 2, continues with solidification of metals and why it matters. Specifics of aluminum, copper alloys, brass and bronze are discussed along with solution heat treatment and precipitation hardening. Ductile and gray cast iron are covered. Gating systems, filters, chills and risers are described along with the design of proper gating systems. Several "hands on" projects include pattern making, match-plates and rubber molds, casting a cylinder head and pistons all in your own back yard! The plans for a sturdy flask latch are worth the price of the book alone. Historical topics include the details of casting the Ford Flathead V-8 and piston rings. This is a must have reference for the foundry enthusiast, auto restorer, or experienced metal caster!
