Foundry Build: Part2 pouring the base and top.

After a week or more of inactivity I got back on the foundry project. I managed to get some of the insulatory refractory cement mixed and put in place as the top and the base of the foundry. Next up will be cutting the holes for the tuyere in the side of the keg and form. Then placing the form in the center and pouring the core.

3d printed column
the refractory mix poured into the cap with the 3d printed column in the center. This will be where the hot gasses exit.
Casting the Base, with a piece of pvc in, so that is the crucible fails or there is a spill the molten metal has a place to run out.
