Casting the Keel

October 20, 2008

With the lead assembled, we found 2 cast iron bathtubs and had Jason Roberts weld pipes to the drains.  These became our crucibles, which were then supported on heavy steel saw horses.  Jonah had built a mold out of three layers of plywood, supported by ribs and then packed into a sand box to halt any leakage through the mold.

Mike Greenberg, Alice Hershey, Daniel Koltonski, Emiliano Rodriguez, Wendy, Kate, Jonah and Bob assembled with many bottles of propane and a collection of torches.
