Myself and another member are looking to start a Metal Casting Group and we're looking for more members. I know there are several other members that have done casting in the past, we'd really like you to join us or at least lend us your knowledge. We're probably going to start with aluminum, but I hope to work up to maybe steel and some alloys, but we'll see how it goes.
I believe we have several small foundries and burners available, with more in the works, I think we need crucibles and handling tools, though.
Last year I had contacted a couple local foundries about acquiring some of their used green sand and was told to bring a bucket or a truck and take as much as I wanted. I'll have to get in touch with them and make sure the offer is still open.
One of the things I'm excited to try is using my 3D printer to create lost investment moulds.
Let me know if you're interested.
Instructables is my crack.

Too many irons, not enough fire.
