June 6 Bronze Pour

Unread post by Marty.Hicks » Thu May 28, 2015 10:34 am

Hello All,

Just a reminder that we're casting bronze June 6th -- a week from Saturday. We're using green sand and sodium silicate for the moulds and silicon bronze to make strangely awesome things.

Stop by and check it out. The grill will be going around 6:00 pm. Bring your beverage of choice and something to share.

The address is:
2223 Stewart Ave.
Saint Paul, Mn 55116

With heavy chance of rain Saturday eve we're switching the pour to Sunday June 7. The plan is to light the furnace mid-afternoon.

Great time Marty, very informative. Thanks for the hospitality! I've uploaded the video to my Google Drive, it was 140M, a bit to big for email.
