For those of you with access to facebook, you may like to see a video I uploaded earlier this week of pipe metal casting here at the works. Not everybody has seen this process and I still find it fascinating to watch after all these years. You can see it here:

I have now added a video of the metal planing as well. If the metal casting is not immediately visible, scroll down to the 24th of July.

Thankyou for this on pipe metal casting.

It reminded me of a 6th form school trip in the 1960s, instigated by me of course. Five of us went from Bath to Osmonds workshop in Taunton. A good day was chosen as they were casting on the casting bench on that day. We were received very cordially over all. The intricacies of casting were explained including how spotted metal was arrived at also. Even in those days I had not thought that Osmonds would have a pipe-maker, but obviously so.
