Here is an excerpt from the new Metal Casting Forum Silversmithing Tools information webpage:
âMost of the metal casting tools are pretty standard and can be used for the different casting processes. If you already familiar with metal work then the chances are pretty good that you already have some of the tools in your garage or workshop. In fact, it is possible to make many of the tools that are commonly found in small foundries. If you are unable to make your own tools then there are many online resources where you can buy tools and even home improvement stores will have the tools.
The absolute must have metal casting tools will be used for safety. Safety in the home foundry is a must since any accidents that can occur will more then likely result in devastating injuries, remember safety first.
Gloves will be necessary when pouring the molten metal or picking up the crucible with the aid of heavy strength tongs. The heat from many of the molten metals will be very intense so long sleeve shirts are also advisable. Jeans and work boots will help prevent any injuries in case of spills. Remember, molten metal will splatter when poured on wet surfaces or surfaces that have recently been wet. Even concrete can cause molten metal to splatter that is why metal casters always keep a muffin tin on hand where any excess molten metal can be safely stored. Always wear goggles when working with intense flames to avoid eye damage. Without the appropriate safety gear injuries are pretty much guaranteed.â
