Traditional Trades Workshop: Iron Pour at HSMC
December 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Historic St. Mary’s City is launching a program in traditional metal arts with a molten iron pour.
Over 50 custom stanchions for the Croton Engineerium Museum will be cast using a nose tilt crucible furnace. Over 800 pounds of 3000 degree molten metal will be poured into resin-bonded sand molds. Future plans include a functional blacksmith forge.
The pour will be led by Foundry master Philip Harrison of Penumbra Design.
