We’ve covered many of the outstanding projects from FrankG and now he’s gone and made us blush… He writes –

“I’ve just completed a small metal casting project based on the “Make:” Logo. I was hoping that I could send it along to you as a small token of my appreciation for the “Blog” Coverage that Makezine has provided theworkshop.ca…”Link.

Frank, I’m sitting in a puddle in a flooded apartment, in a pile of ruined stuff – this made it all seem ok, thanks man!

    Just to toot my own horn (not as much fun as it sounds) I put up a Flickr set about making the craft: logo in sterling silver a while back.

    And also just a pic of a keyring:

    The process of design is identical to Frank’s, I used Rhino and Bobcad (cad and cam). Rather than casting for the bracelet I made a rolling mill die, and for the keyring I just milled it directly into the material.

    I like those castings!

    Nice casting- but it pales next to the news of your flooded home!!! OUCH!

  3. MacFanMR says:

    So did you remove the foam from the sand prior to casting or just burn it out with the molten metal? I know that is done with Wax sometimes. I was just wondering how you removed the foam without upsetting the sand. Of course if you’re going to do some milling, it’s not critical they be perfect.
