Lockdown No. 5
A few more small jobs out of the way, and some underway.
I showed you the “large” Kant Twist clamps recently.
Now I have finished the small ones. Same pattern, just reduced by 1/3. And a different handle.
And back to the bombard. (The rib pain is easing). A 14kg crucible is on the way from UK. And I have the PLA models for the mold. I do hope that I do not need to reprint them.
Now I am thinking about how to funnel the bronze into the mold, and where to place some air vents. Also have to work out how to drain the melted PLA during burnout cycle.
Will need to make some tongs for the new big crucible.
And for my non Australian readers, we in Victoria and NSW are in Covid lockdown again. So I have plenty of time for planning for the bronze pour.
