Our brass door knocker is now ready to be cast. The mold has been taken to the pouring area and the furnace is hot.
Our mold has been taken out to the pouring area and is ready for the molten brass to be poured into it.
Our brass is getting hot in the crucible in the furnace.
When everything is in order we are ready to pour. The crucible containing the molten brass is lifted out of the furnace and taken to the mold. The molten brass is poured from the crucible into the mold.
When the mold has cooled enough to be handled it is taken back to the mold bench and broken down.
Here is our casting complete with gates and sprues ready to be taken to the finishing shop. There the sprues and gates will be removed. The entire piece will be polished to the finish needed.
