    And how cheap do you think a microwave that can melt steel is?

    I'd like to know the answer to that too. But I do have some idea of the wages paid to skilled pattermakers and foundry hands - and the costs of small batch production.
    Once the initial investment is made, there's no holiday pay, sick pay or strikes. Another example of how to lose manufacturing skills.

    Yes, very wonderful. Sand printing has been around for a while now, great process but only for prototyping or low run, as its time consuming like all printing processes.
    Production foundry tooling and or die casting can be very fast.
    Ill stick to my ethanol fueled, vaccume cleaner powered furnace and old school pattern, tooling techniques.
    Because of the cost effectiveness.

    Aluminium billet is getting expensive, Im told it will go up 40% in the next six months.
    Funny how my scrap isnt worth anything still.
    Back to patterns and casting, old alloy car wheels are worh f%^^k all and make great casting material being CC601.
    This will be the last of machining from solid.

    Urea is driven by fuel as its a petrochem derivative
    its basically doubled in 6 months.
    N drives the pasture and Hort market so expect veges and all food also to go up.

    Hewser, same thing over here, particularly with AdBlue, which is all basically 32% urea which is derived from ammonia. However all will be good with the hydrogen economy being touted as the savior ...

    Not really, but through no fault of the hydrogen that burns with an almost invisible blue flame. The visible flames came from the burning lacquer on the hull.

    I used his video to 3d print the mold for a one off model boat cowl. It worked really well and took a lot less time than building the male plug and female mold conventionally. See namba.com/content/library/propwash/2021/October/16/
