Power Models 11” Westinghouse Pump

Post by FLtenwheeler » Fri Apr 02, 2021 7:36 am

I just purchased the 3 molds that serviced (survived?) the fire. I have the other 2 parts drawn up. I need to find someone that can sink the molds for me.

Thanks

Doug Edwards (a board reader) is a specialist in mold making.

Hard to tell what you have there. What’s inside the silver boxes?

They are the 3 aluminum molds for the parts I have.

A lot of the PMS patterns and molds were at the foundry and weren't affected by the fire. After the fire they were sold on Ebay. I have some push pole pocket and queen post patterns for sand casting from there.
