its been a while since you did this video. I'm interested in what you've
learned since then. Particularly, on making optimal greensand.

I want to thank you for taking the time and effort to post this.

It's folks like you that fuel others in a creative path.

Can you reuse this sand after molding ? I have already built my furnace.im
lost on the sand. Can you please write a list of materials needed and where
to buy from thanks

Don't know if they have a location in your vicinity but they sell bentonite
at "ditch witch" retailers. I think it's fifty pound bags. We use it for
priming concrete pump lines. Probably cheaper than getting it by mail.

Thanks for your video,it helped set me on the path to casting aluminium bow
risers.I'm building knock down re curves with hard maple and carbon fiber
limbs.I'm using AFS 100 sand, bentonite and oil.I'm getting great detail
with little finish work.

every video I go on all they say is use bentonite clay, but what CLAY!
sodium, calcium, aluminum?

The tarp method is very old school. How about using a bucket, a power drill
and a mixing bit? Great demo but very time consuming.

could use a small concrete mixer. that has worked well for me..

Another kind of sand you can use is pool filter sand.

Автор TheElderScrollsKing (8 месяцев)
why is it called greensand?

Автор SleezyJeezy (6 месяцев)
Cool. Thanks for the info on what not to use for sand casting

Screening together your dry powders will mix them thoroughly and adding
small amounts of water and screening occassionally will disperse the water
more evenly while continuing to mix.

The sand you are using is awfully coarse for typical molding sand. You
might want to get some 2NS sand from a concrete supply or gravel pit. The
problem with gravel pit sand is that depending upon the state you are in,
it might contain a lot of limestone, which will hurt the finish. If there
is a foundry supply in the area, buy sand with an AFS grain fineness of 70
or finer. The higher the number, the finer the sand. I run a production
and prototype foundry and we use an AFS 100 grain fineness sand. We have
used AFS 400 sand in the past. When I was young, we would mix sand with an
eastern coal shovel on a concrete floor.. Just place the sand and
bentonite together and turn it over several times till it is well mixed.
We always used a garden hose with a spray nozzle to wet the sand.
Typically, you want to let the sand sit for an hour or so after you have
cut / mixed it to allow the moisture to become more uniform throughout the
sand. Mix the sand and water with a shovel. Store it in a plastic bucket
with a lit to keep it from drying out. You can cleanup the sand with a
broom when you are done. You didn't say if you bought southern or western
bentonite. Typically, if you use rounded silica sand, you will want a
mixture of 50/50 western and southern bentonite for aluminum. Western
bentonite is stronger than southern bentonite. Too much western and the
sand wants to stick together in hard lumps after you have poured your
molds. We typically run our mixture at 7.5%, not 12% clay. That is a
little high. More clay reduces the permeability of the sand, making it
more likely that if the sand is a little too wet, you will get steam
bubbles that will push through the metal as opposed to going out through
the sand. These are called blows. If the sand is wet enough, it will
rocket out of the sprue (the sprue is the hole that you pour the metal into
the mold), something fairly dangerous. The sand should stick together like
snow does, when you squeeze it. You should be able to take the squeezed
sand with two fingers, and shake it lightly without if coming apart. If it
crumbles, it is too dry. It should not stick to your hand. If it sticks
to your hand, it is too wet.

You will find that the green sand would have worked much better if you had
put the clay in a bucket with water and boiled it. This activates the
clay. Otherwise, it will only slowly become active as you pour metal into
the molds and the clay gets steamed. Over time the sand will nearly double
in strength. With this level of clay and the strength it will achieve, it
will be difficult to get a smooth casting without the sue of a fine screen
(called a riddle) to break up the lumps as you put sand in your mold. You
should use a riddle with 1/8" x 1/8" holes. You can order these from
companies such as Freeman Supply and are known as a #8 riddle. The number
is the number of wires per inch, or you can make your own with hardware
wire screen.

I would be careful if you decide to use plaster. Plaster must be very dry
before you pour it. Typically, you want to bake a plaster mold in an oven
for at lease 8 hours at 600 degrees before pouring it, to get the moisture
out. Failing to do this often results in aluminum foam as opposed to solid
aluminum parts.

Kitty litter is clay, don't use fragrant type

It seems dry to me. Your mold will wash when you pour. I was a molder for
I am thinking of pouring aluminum in plaster of Paris.

Please let me know if you decide to use plaster. I would really like to
know I helped.

I bought 50 lbs of sodium bentinite from a farm store for around 5 bucks

Автор Duckyistrippin (2 года)
man thats fucking insane. call any local ceramics, pottery place supply
place and they will have bentonite clay. usually they will sell it by the
pound so you dont need to get a a freaking 50 dollar bag when you need six
pounds of it. petrobond for sale website seems to be the ticket. guy is
selling pre mulled petro bond for about a buck a pound shipped.

Bentonite Clay has a lot of versatility. Thank you for the tip.

would this work to cast iron or steel?

Автор Larry Tischler (1 год)
Many years ago we made 12 to 16 ounce "bell shaped" surf fishing weights
from Padre Island. beach sand molds. That sand is a little too spherical to
cast much detail. We were using old recycled fishing weights and it is
nearly pure lead. One or two of per cent tin added can get you better mold
fill-out. Consult the Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook available at a library.
Will you use steel clips?

I used super cheapo cat litter in my greensand. I can't say how well it
works compared to pure Bentonite, because I've never used it, but I get
good results casting aluminum. I used my Magic Bullet blender to powderfy
(new word) the cat litter and then sieved it. I used a trowel to mull it by
hand. If you smear the clay into the sand really good it will hold the
shape of your pattern much better. If someone doesn't mind doing the extra
work to save a few bucks it's a good way to go. Thumb up

Автор The Ammo Channel (2 года)
That's how I started too. Just used dirt and sifted out the rocks.
Eventually I added some motor oil as a binding agent. It worked OK. Keep it

Автор motorhagel (2 года)
Grinding the cat-litter in a ordinary kitchen- blender/mixer makes it fine
as powder in a matter of seconds. This way I made about 40Kg greensand a
couple of months ago. Despite what some experts are saying, it really does
the job good. Though it required a lot of mulling before i found the
strength of the sand satisfying. Mulling in this case was done by hand..
and took me about 6 hrs of manual hard labor. Next project will be to make
a muller ;) Good Luck! and thanks for sharing =)

10 bucks at a farmer's co-op will get you fifty pounds of super fine
bentonite clay. Kitty litter is a pain in the butt to get ground down to a
useful consistancy.

Автор djpaulk (2 года)
Nice vid..Sorry to burst Ur bubble,,The process you use is fine for the 1st
1/2,actually well detailed,But that silica sand is only 00 grade.So it does
not matter how fine ur bentonite clay is.The surface finish will only be as
fine/detailed as ur 00 silica sand.Bentonite clay is expensive as hell.Why
not just use fire clay?It is less than $20 for 10kg ..You will then have
change left to buy a sieve/riddle.I hope that white thing was NOT
polystyrene,the thing U put the cope/drag UPSIDE down on??

Автор Ars Armagus (2 года)
Not a problem. If you want a relatively smooth finish for castings, then I
would suggest using a thin layer of Talc on the form used to make the mold.
This also helps with the removal of the form from the mold.

Where did you get a pressure sprayer? (Online or Home Depot/WalMart?)

Автор Bikefarm Taiwan (1 год)
Thanks for posting.I am sure that you will find after mulling the mixture
will give a lot better results. Good job as far as you have gone but the
sand as shown is not there yet.The the devil is in the details and mulling
is the thing you might find gives you much better results. The clay need to
be pounded into the sand like you wouldn't believe just like Mr B says.

I had considered the catlitter thing before doing this and decided against
it. The reason is that while yes, clumping litter does contain bentonite --
it is chunky. The bentonite I purchased was ultra fine, like flour, which
allows it to "coat" the grains of sand. I'm not sure that you could grind
cat litter that well. If you try it please let us know the results! Thank
you very much for watching and commenting.

The absolute best way to mix greensand and remoisten used greensand is with
a cheap harbor freight electric cement mixer.. just pull up a lawnchair and
relax with your spray bottle and a cold Sam Adams..
