My oldest kid really likes chess and wanted a nice set.
I googled and found a mold set.
We spent hours trying, failing, cutting in extra vents, tapping, fluxing, etc.
Finally got a couple usable pieces. The knight is the coolest looking and hardest to cast. So we started with that. The rest should be way easier.
I am really surprised at the detail that these rubber molds have and how well it held up to repeated casting.
Anyone ever made a homemade centrifugal casting thingy?
