I guess this post could go under multiple titles but for now I am building these valves for the by-products plant, although they could be used throughout the mill.   Basically I need a ton and a half of gate valves in 1/2" through 3/8".  The valve shown in the photos is from the Thomas Coke Works.  It has a smooth housing unlike many valves with external reinforcing.  A master was carefully made and a mold form built.  The photo shows the 1/2" valve with  half the mold rubber poured.

Very interesting to see all casting process. And find out what materials were used.
