I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
Does anyone know of a source where I can purchase rectangular sand
casting flasks that are reasonably priced in the U. S. You know the
old school kind that you can stand up vertically for pouring. I don’t
understand why the delft clay comes with the cylinder shaped flasks
that only work horizontal. You are very limited to the designs you
can make with these.
I guess because they are cheaper to make they supply only these
In the U. S. searches online I’ve only seen one brand of
manufactured rectangular sand casting flasks available to jewelers
and they are ridiculously priced at 50 or 60 dollars for a 5 inch
long set. I would even consider purchasing from across the pond and
pay more due to shipping rather than buy the only one that cornered
the entire North American continent market.
Is there anywhere where these simple pieces are 20 or 30 bucks and
would save me a lot of time of making one?
