    Casting alloy CNC plate + 23 tips for casting in general

    Hi Friends, so we have struggled with casting aluminium in our small DIY furnace over the years - getting them wrong an unreasonable amount, but...
    We are actually starting to have some success
    Just wanted to share some (23!!) of the things we have learned through our experiences. Far from the perfect process but I recon it would have helped us a bunch if had this a year or two ago. Any other tips you may have, don't be afraid to share

    The man that doesn't learn from mistakes is a fool.....the man that makes no mistakes hasn't ever done anything!
