    Cast aluminum mortising fence

    A mortising fence made through lost foam casting. The pattern was made of blue foam pieces glued with a low temp hot glue gun.Cast aluminum mortising fence-unnamed-1-.jpg

    Sorry about the screw up on my part. I had mega-trouble uploading overly big picture files plus I started two threads on the same topic somehow:-( See my thread on lost foam casting and you will find all the pics there now. Here

    Thanks for your forbearance.

    Yes, pics would be great. It would be great to see the process, starting from foam pieces to a finished aluminum piece.

    Dang it cap. I cannot get the picture of my finished product up loaded. I am sorry if I caused confusion by apparently starting two threads on one topic, one referencing "lost foam" and one "cast aluminum mortising fence". I am not able to post photos after the computer changes at homemadetools.net. I hope that gets sorted out soon.

    Hi Bob,

    The photo uploading issues are resolved on our side, so you should be able to post those photos using the original method. If that's still not working for you, please let me know (either here or via PM) and we'll sort it out.
