Casting

This casting was done with the centrifugal machine.  You first need to melt the metal in the crucible inside the machine, and then place the flask straight from the kiln, secure it in place, and, with the torch still keeping the metal liquid, turn on the centrifuge. The liquid metal will me pulled into the cavities left by the wax by centrifugal force.
