I am looking for someone who would be interested in casting 20
miniature copies of a shape similar to that shown in the bottom left
hand picture of
Material can be any kind of bronze or brass alloy. Approximate size is
7" long by 2 1/2" wide by 1 1/2" deep. Surface can be rough. Can be
cast in multiple parts if that makes things easier (and cheaper :-))
I'll do the pattern to your specs. I can make wax masters if need be.
This is a keel bulb for a model sailboat to be used in a youth building
and sailing class. Normally these things are made of lead, but
(rational or not) there's no way you can come within a mile of exposing
kids to lead in a class these days.
Anyhow, if you're interested, email me at boebert [at] swcp.com and we
can get into more detail.
