Rocking Progress (it must be all the Styx we’re listening to)
Daniel cleans up after pouring the last piece of our first molds. We figured they might not work, but would hopefully give us good information and we could start troubleshooting. We stuck them in the fancy dryer they have in the factory…
…and cast them the next day. Which is crazy fast. Also notice the pressurized slip pump.
A very pleasant surprise. Both molds seem to be casting well. We’ll get these in the kiln tomorrow.
