Selecting a vacuum casting machine

Hi all on orchid,

I hope you had a good veterans day. I’m new to the orchid list. And I
have an equipment question that I am having treble figuring out.

Currently I’m in the process of deciding what vacuum casting machine
I should get. I know there are many different brands and stiles out
in the industry today. In the past when I was learning how to vacuum
casting. I only used “Pro-Craft Pro-Cast”. I found two that comes
close to the “Pro-Craft Pro-Cast” but not exactly like it. First
"PRO-CRAFT Vacuum Machine" and the seconded one is “KAYA Casting
Vacuum Machine - professional casting system”. I was wondering if you
might have any input on which machine/brand would be better.

Thank you so much for any advice you can give on this question,


If you would like an images of both machines im talking bout and an
image of the one I learned on let me know.

Hi Chapin,

I would love to see the images of the caster you learned on! I have
"inherited" and old one and I am trying to figure out what to do with
it. It is a Swest Vac-U-Cast with 2 tables. I understand the company
was bought out, but I don’t know the details.
