Reflections: Christmas 2015

Reflections: Christmas 2015
Have a good holiday all, I hope you all get what you wanted to out of it. While you are doing your thing, take the time to think about the things you have that cannot be bought. Trust me on this, one day will come a time when "just one more minute" will be your sum of a world's weight in gold. I used to enjoy the holidays, perhaps in a slightly different way than the societal norm. It's no secret that I abhor the materialistic approach in people- and for the very few who know my mind in all things bless their spirits for seeing my darker view on this and managing to ride through it's storms. "Christmas" stopped for me many, many years ago the very first time I found myself upset because I didn't "get what I wanted". Not the concept of not getting "it", it was...

Realms of Steamgard: Inception

Realms of Steamgard: Inception
Back in 2007, I had just re-subscribed to the idea I needed to get back to design work; Casting, Leather, Wood and Metals.

Spincasting Resources

Spincasting Resources
Check back often, I'll be updating this as time permits and am always open to consult questions in our casting group. *Click on the names/bold letters to be taken to their respective sites.   Equipment Suppliers:   Conquest Industries Conley Casting Corporation Conteti Tekcast Industries   And of course, E-Bay and Craigslist. Don't discount buying used, it's a easy way to start. I pulled up 4k casting machines for a few hundred dollars with periodic searches over the last couple years.

I have a few I prefer, but for your own learning it's good to contact as many as possible to add to your contact list.   Thomasnet List of Suppliers   Mayer Alloys -...
