About The J2R Casting Machine
http://www.neutec.com/j-2r.htm

For a fraction of the cost of any comparable machine, the Neutec
J-2R IV gives you superior castings and greater production
capacity.This exceptional machine combines advanced technology with
practical design to give you the casting capability you need today
and well into the future.

The J-2R IV employs an oxygen-free atmosphere for the metal during
melting and pouring to help eliminate oxidation. The large-volume
graphite crucible also removes oxygen that may previously have been
dissolved in the metal. This means fewer defects and lower reject
rates.

Cast at the optimum temperature for any design without overheating
the metal. The J-2R IV measures the metal temperature in the center
of the metal pool, giving you accurate casting temperatures. The
crucible is a bottom-pour design, so there is very little drop in
metal temperature from crucible to flask.

After initial warm-up, the casting cycle time of the J-2R IV is a
fast 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the load. The
large-volume crucible holds 184cc of metal (902g 14KY or 722g SS).
Accommodates flask sizes from 2.5" to 4" in diameter and up to 9"
high.

Simple to install and operate in only three square feet of bench
space, the J-2R IV requires only that you set the temperature
controller for the desired casting temperature, add the casting
grain to the crucible, insert the flask and (at set temperature)
push the casting lever.

Hello All:

I am not a fund raiser for Orchid. I am only interested in Orchids
continued existence. I have been a member since the beginning and
wish I had more time to respond to questions, but the reality is that
I read as much as I can and have met invaluable contacts through this
list. So I say buy a ticket. You might win the prize, but you will
definitely continue to win knowledge. Thanks to all who work hard to
make Orchid a community we can count on.
