Saunders spin casting machines

Saunders Mark V spin casting machine

I’ve starting running a series on my personal blog on the Saunders bob-weight spin casting machines I use at Fighting 15s. I’ve never been able to find out much about the machines, made by the now defunct N Saunders Metal Products Ltd. This is my personal experience of using them to get the best results, and the articles have been prompted by the acquisition of a second machine that needs repairing and refurbishing. Other users’ mileage may well vary.

Part 1, introducing the machine, is at: http://wp.me/p9K3f-5Q

Part 2, dealing with a personal mod to get casting pressure right, is at: http://wp.me/p9K3f-a2

Part 3 looks at repairs and refurbishment. It’s a work in progress and is at http://wp.me/p9K3f-d4

Part 4 will cover casting tips.
