It's essential to have good friends...but it's even better to have have good friends that go to auctions. This complete foundry setup showed up at my house over the weekend. A family friend got it at an estate sale for a really great price and thought I needed it. Well...he was right!
Everything is there, even the crucible half full of aluminum. Unfortunately, it originally ran on natural gas. Since I do not have natural gas service, it will have to be converted to propane.
