We started a groop build a waterloo 25 HP side mount
The reason for the scale is a 10 inch pipe works out to boiler diameter so scaling the rest from there IMG_20190825_181113.jpg IMG_20191124_133043.jpg

We are working from a friends full-size engine
5 of us are building them
The drawings I am making up as well as the patterns

As for the casting it is iron
We use an a10 or an a 20 crucible depending on what we are going to poor
I use green sand and spay it with graphite and alcohol
Helps with the chill and the finish of the casting
The foundry is fire on oil

I would love to try my hand at casting, but aluminum is as much as I have hoped for. I am impressed that you are not only casting iron, but getting such beautiful results!
