IRON FOUNDRY - Part 4
Originally I was going to build the windboxes for the the cupola furnaces from wood on the lathe and drill press, but instead I opted to use styrene to build one and then make castings. In using styrene the shape you end up with is slightly irregular with some minor oil canning and other imperfections, just like the real thing. I also built a tuyere for later casting - ultimately I need about 8 for each .
