Reproducing Metal Name Badges

Recommended Posts

Keep in mind the melting, handling, pouring of molten metal is very unforgiving of even small or innocent mistakes or miscalculations. A drop of water here, a trip hazard there, a trapped air pocket and it all happens sooo fast and hurts soooo much.................Bob

This was ultimately why my parts went to Cattail. I certainly could have handled the process but one little tiny mistake can spell disaster.

True dat! Brass melts at about 1750 degrees, aluminum at about 1400. We actually had a snall foundry operation at our shop years ago. Was fun and we learned a lot but there is a bit of art to it that takes years to master.

Hi,

Where in Illinois are you located?

Do know Kevin Mueller? He has a grand collection of small 1960s theme boats that I make emblems for all the time.

Spin casting is the best way to reproduce your parts.
