try something like an engine stand. you'll have to make a frame adapter that clamps around your mold and connects it to the stand, but to me this seems like the cheapest/easiest way to be able to pour heavy molds since you can likely find a used stand on craigslist for cheap.



Thats a good idea to keep in mind...Thanks!

I'm shure I could design something and weld it up but I like to take advantage of those who have gone before me whenever possible....I'm shure I'm not the first person to think of this I've just been unable to find anything on the internet, I keep coming up with rotocasting machines.

I intend to set up a production slush casting of a product line and have been thinking of some sort of tilting frame work on wheels that I can clamp a heavy mold pour in the slurry and then rotate it to drain over a tub without having to lift and handle the molds by hand all day. Does anyone here know of a manufactured frame or a place to obtain plans to build one?

Thanks!


I think you mean slip casting.



I think you are right...Its a language thing I am an old resin caster and foundry guy...


Ive never seen what you are describing, but it would be fairly simple and inexpensive to build--how heavy are the molds youre pouring?



I don't know what the weight will be yet but the smallest would be 12" x 12" x 24" plus the weight of the slip so I'm guessing at least 60lb filled.
