Cast aluminium wheels

Last Friday we fired up the crucible and did some aluminium casting at rLab. Mostly  melting some scrap into ingots, but Andy also made this fantastic pair of wheel blanks using lost foam casting. He has since put together this great video that shows the full end-to-end process, including how he prepared the moulds – well worth a watch if you’re considering doing this yourself.
