You can find them at ) As I read this book written by Gingery, I noticed that the molds were machined with a lathe and made from aluminum. The general agreement here is that the gingery lathe is a POS, and that you should only build one for practice, not for actually using it. ive been a member here for some time mostly just reading and now this section has been added i may be able to contribute. this is my casting project. i.

I can remember our casting course in the higher technical college where we had to use them so that no air is trapped within the mold.


It would be nice to have an array of chucks to reduce set-up time. Views Read Edit View history. Real surface plates are a couple inches thick so they don’t warp.

I have so much time in making the patterns, then once you cast the parts you need to finish them, which when doing by hand takes many many hours. You really can’t make a machine tool too heavy.

I put ginngery of my effort on rebuilding and buying tooling for the Craftsman lathe that was given to me. Proper aluminum alloys are soft, light and strong with poor vibration damping and good workability, and poor alloys pop can alloy, for example, or some contaminated mixed alloys are soft, light, potentially relatively weak, have poor damping and poor workability.

The process of turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones can at times require the use of a large sledgehammer. Well I bought the books after building me a foundry furnace and began making patterns. The time now is I found a book on layhe subject from Lindsay Books.

This article includes a list of referencesrelated reading or external linksbut its sources remain unclear because it lacks inline citations. That with making the castings from iron as well. You will also understand how to design patterns and have some ability to predict where you will need risers when making a new oathe. My question is, what are the specific issues with the Gingery lathe and how could we fix those issues?


Barry also built the Gingery metal shaper ggingery book 3 of the series. Except that you wouldn’t have the experience of making your own.
