Hobart, Washington (PressExposure) June 08, 2008 -- Metal Casting Zone has just released a new Forum section of their website that has all of the informative questions and answers on Foundry Supplies, Casting Supplies, and other Foundry Supply Hobby Information. This is part of a new forum on the metal casting community website that is all about Casting. Members and non-members can visit this Forum page on the Metal Casting website for free at: http://www.metalcastingzone.com/metal-casting-forum.
Here is an excerpt from the new Metal Casting Forum Foundry Supplies information webpage:
âMetal casting supplies can run the gamut of cheap to expensive. Home foundries tend to use supplies that are not too costly or that can be found close at hand. After all, home metal casting is usually a hobby and many get into this hobby since they need a cheaper source of parts and pieces that are either far too expensive or just impossible to find. This reason is actually what draws many people to metal casting in the first place. Given this, metal casting supplies used in smaller backyard foundries are generally cheap and made of items that are available in the garage or can be found at home improvement stores. There are several online resources and stores that offer supplies specially made for metal casting and if you have the money and are unable to create your own, it is encouraged that you purchase already made supplies.
The metal casting supplies you will need ultimately depend upon the type of work you plan to do. If you plan to use lost foam casting you will not need any wax and in that same thought you won't need any foam if you are going to use lost wax casting.â
