Making a sand mold without a pattern

(1/3) > >>

Here is a video showing how I made the mold when ductile iron was melted.   

Now there's a method of casting I hadn't seen before! Excellent, and informative.

Ironman are you still using cement and sand mix for your core sand, or is it something else?

No I found that cement sand cores are hard to dig out in tight pockets so I use more expensive binders (Fiberglass resin) I still think that cement sand is the cheapest core sand around.

Oh, fiberglass it the common fiberglass polyester laminating resin, and hardener, or is it a special core sand resin made for the purpose?

The cores look very sharp and strong.
