  • How To Make The Mini Metal Foundry

    I got the 6 gallon bucket and 10 quart plastic bucket, 4inch pipe with cap etc.. everything from your video. https://youtu.be/f3HMxB6Op-o The only difference is I am using play sand and plaster of paris. I am not sure what the exact mix I need. With the 6 gallon bucket, the displacement of mix I need is about 15 quarts like you said in your video. So what is the mix I need. 1/2 sand, 1/2 plaster of paris, 1/4 water? Do I need to included the water in the three part mix to add up to the 15 qt displacement? Or do I just mix the dry materials to the 15 qt and then just add water on top of that? 7.5 quarts each of plaster of paris and play sand?

    I bought all the stuff to make this. I got a 6 gallon metal bucket. I am still confused on the mix though. I got my info from a few different videos. I liked the 6 gallon bigger bucket idea so I was getting my info from this video. I am doing play sand and plaster of paris though so I am not sure what the exact mix I need. With the 6 gallon bucket, the displacement of mix I need is about 15 quarts. So what is the mix I need. 1/2 sand, 1/2 plaster of paris, 1/4 water?

    got to any hardware shop and get some hole saw bits and the adapter.

    I went to a local plumbers shop and bought a 4 inch diameter pipe that is about 6 inches long and threaded on the both ends. Then I bought an end cap for it. It was kind of expensive, but I am doing a 6 gallon bucket and had the room to make it a little bigger.
