    Why don’t you put the crucible in the forge you can use your shaving and other small brass scrap why you still setting up your crucible while things are cold add crushed green bottle glass just break a bottle to get flat piece of glass than on top of your brass shaving and brass scrap on top of the crucible glass will melt and have a nice seal and you just do what you normally do You won’t get so much copper oxide when you pour brass Before you pour add some zinc to your brass just before you pour if you can restart your furnace but Do you this just before you pour your brass do you pre heat the ladle little in the furnace and remove the slag from the crucible before you pour your brass you have a cleaner casting

    Well, great work, guys! Not to be a cynic, but... it seems to me you two could have just machined/engraved/filed/carved one (or two or three) of these out of solid brass in less than two months.... for less money. But, a new skill. Great value there too.

    Awesome video by the way! Always look forward to new ones! You have too much porosity in that casting. You need to make the button/sprue larger than the actual casting, that way the button stays molten longer. If your button is larger than the thing you are casting it will develop the porosity instead of the piece. Another thing you can do is only partially submerge the investment in the water so that the piece cools before the button cools. All ways of reducing porosity. Second, an aluminum oxide or glass bead sand blasting unit is the most effective way of removing investment from your casting. They are relatively inexpensive and have a lot of useful purposes. Hope this helps!

    Make sure the air can escape when casting, make enough channels where the air can go while you pour in through the main channel. (A relavice is a profesional caster, I did work for him when I was a lot younger (15/16-ish) ;) ) During casting your brass seemed a bit hot, the zinc seemed to be escaping, but well, the only thing you can do is just doing it more often. Love to watch it :)

The same to sizes and distance, you could say it also in metric. Would be good to show some respect for the international viewers...

    Damn fine job guys! It may not be perfect, but it IS beautiful. Most importantly you have learned so much and expanded your capabilities with the new vacuum chamber and kiln. So much progress! And props to trying it "the wrong way". Why the hell not? It was entertaining, and it almost worked perfectly. That molten brass did look awfully filthy. I wonder if that wasn't the only real problem with your casting.

    When you recast, just a rule of thumb you might be interested in and one more pointer on pouring: All castings have porosity but, you can place the porosity in the button (assuming you do everything else correctly) by using enough brass to ensure the button weighs the same as the rest of the casting (piece and sprues combined). When you pour, pour fast. As fast as the flask will accept the brass, which will be FAST.

    Man. I like your videos but you're teaching bad health and safety. The ginger chick never ties her hair back None of you wear gloves, proper goggles, aprons and probably not even protective boots. Are there no health and safty laws in the US? You are such a bad influence on your viewers and I'm so insanely surprised that you haven't been shut down yet... p.s. Still on videos from december/jan so if this has changed by this video then sure, what ever. But my point still stands, Be an actual man and wear proper PPE, don't be ignorant otherwise you're going to lose a digit/limb, your licence to hire, and possibly your entire workplace.

    it's way kewl, BUT... Alec said "This could have been much much better...". When he says stuff like that it means he will never be happy withing and knows already it doesn't measure up to his own standard and integrity. If this were something was working on, which would be foam, not steel...I would be doing the job over. there's been A LOT of effort and expense towards creating something beautiful. No reason to shot shift it now.

    Alec and Will, one of your Canadian subscribers here, amazing progress so far!!!! In case no one has mentioned it before now, when casting brass I always used to throw in a handful or two of broken glass. The glass melts and floats on top of the brass acting as a separating layer between atmospheric gasses and the molten brass. When you pour the brass the glass tends to stay behind in the crucible while the brass slides out from underneath. Works really slick!! Hope that’s useful information for you on future pours.
