Metal Casting 2 by Steve Chastain: A Sand Casting Manual For the Small Foundry
Part 2 of the Sand Casting Manual continues by describing more advanced techniques. This book shows how to cast metal in sand molds using simple techniques and readily available materials.
It shows how to make rubber molds and match plates and how to cast pistons and cylinder heads. Written in non-technical terms, the sand casting manuals begin by melting aluminum cans over a charcoal fire and end by casting a cylinder head.
