Tip O' The Day


Tip O' The Day

A cheap centrifuge for casting    


[Science!]

   Molds and Casting

Submitted By:

Tip:

   I tore an old 78 RPM turntable apart and mounted the platen on a heavy plywood base.On that I fastened an arm that will spin and that accomadate my mold container.When I use acrylic or liquid-type castings,I start the turntable,bringing it up to speed,then spin the arm which most-of-the-time forces the bubbles out of the casting. I hope this helps.
