Red face boler bling

Thanks for the complimentary words guys and if you have any other questions on aluminum casting feel free to ask. It has been fun for me despite the learning curve and I am sure you too will love the aluminum Boler emblem, especially if you bling it up via polishing. Have fun and good luck forging.

Emblem polished

Okay.... so I have been asked for pics of the final product so here they are.
The first pic shows some of the progressions in my castings.

Top= aluminum not hot enough to flow through the casting so I poured from the inlet and then the outlet or vent port, resulting in two pieces.

Next one down is the better result of waiting for the molten aluminum to be “orange silver hot” and an added 3 inch inlet riser for greater head pressure.

Next 2 ones are my improved castings with added thickness. I added a backer board on my original mold to give it strength and a luxurious look. The edges were slightly beveled so the original would release from the petrobond sand easily.

The other pic is just the 2 finished ones until I give them a final buff in the spring before I put them on my boler.
Happy trails.
