Great ! in Modena and Bologna you can also visit Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani car factories as well as some car museumsI just found this thread. Very impressive work! I drove through Modena on my way to Bologna. I visited the Ducati factory which was excellent.
Enjoy your freedom next week.
very nice. Love to see the progress
In my garden foundry I now only use one type of aluminum (AlSi9Cu1 ) without any additives such as salt, baking soda or degassing tablets.Your castings look fantastic and would love know a little more about your process for casting. what materials you used for the metal (clean store bought Aluminum?? Your formula for the sand mixture, and what grit of sand you used.
I will definitely be following this article and discussion.
What type of plastic do you use with your 3D printer to achieve such beautiful results, maybe a few setting on your printer (if it's outside of the default settings) might help me.
I like how you said “cut 12 +1”The heads , there are twelve, one for each cylinder, I initially thought of making them through aluminum casting but the cooling fins are very thin and my low foundry technique does not allow me to make these small thicknesses.
I bought a rectangular aluminum bar and cut 12+1 slices
