As for reproducing parts, "We", as in the Association, have one of those cowboy casting furnaces with a 5 gallon bucket of oil based green casting sand.

It was purchased many years ago with Association dues so it is available for all to use.

We also have a Caswell triple chrome plating setup.

None of this stuff has ever been used because I'm working so many hours. Good intentions are only good if you get busy!

Sorry, I still have not got the new membership program up and running.

Dues for current members is $11. It will go up to $15 for new members because of hosting fees going up and such.

Until I get the new membership thingy going, you can just send your dues to webmaster at classicglasspars.com and put your username in the notes.

Michael,
I well understand your lack of time issues, been there, done that. About that equipment though, what comes to my mind would be to make some copies of a "Glasspar" emblem. I don't know if what you have could do that, but it might be worth kicking the idea around a bit. :whistle:

JR, that is exactly why I originally bought the equipment. I was going to cast them out of brass rather than the original pot metal emblems. Those were injection molded but if a guy learns the sand casting, it can come out just as good because it is super fine sand to reproduce detail.

I would love to get started this year but I think I'll be heading back overseas again for 90 days . . . Just not sure when, maybe in May.

Don't know anything about sand casting but might be willing to learn. How about posting some pictures of the equipment.
Thanks
