Default Crucible camera pouring cast iron.

Hi everyone.

I have always wanted to mount a camera on my pouring trolley but because getting someone with good camera skills when I need them can be difficult. It turned out so well I wished I had done this a lot earlier. Also I have restored some old engines and I have always admired the cast makers plate on these old engines so I made one for myself, have a look at the video. https://youtu.be/fQ4nw_KTyEM

Very nice setup you have for casting. What did you use for refractory in your furnace that will go up to iron temps?

Thanks!

Kevin

DAMN YOU, FERROMAN!!! You've just posted such a great POV metal casting video I'll never be able to top it. I had been planning to do a brass casting video soon with my new GoPro and chest mount but you beat me to it. Seriously though, the videos of yours that I've seen have been most enjoyable and informative. I'm still limited to aluminum and brass casting but I hope one day to cast iron the way you do.
Best regards,

I use kaowool and it helps me to get iron melting temps.

I think my camera works as good as a gopro.
