I have to add a comment here.
I started centrifugal casting with a Lucas spin caster in 1971.
I still use parts of that first machine.
This is by far the best spin casting machine made.
Two additional bits of
Richard on his new machine built in a quick release lever. This has
been a well-guarded secret of spin casters for along time.
When the metal is ready to cast and looks good, the quicker delivery
delivers a better cast. I can guarantee it. It’s also safer not
having your hand inside the machine when releasing the arm to cast.
If you are having a problem with white gold vacuum casting, many
switch back to spin casting for the best results.
Of the three master casters I had the privilege of learning from,
all had modified the spinner to have a quick release lever. Again
this was not shared knowledge.
I bought my first new machine from Richard recently and was not
He now sell direct and the price is cut in about half. What else
could you ask for?
I’ve seen the Chinese units and have not used one, but would never
change what has worked so well for me for so many years.
