Casting Gnomes

The Gee-Gnome foundry fabrication has been finished and tested and after some fine tuning (actually coarse tuning followed by the fine kind) it was found to be just peachy. We can melt about 65 lbs of Aluminum in one charge and a winch tilts the whole furnace about the pour spout and boy is it exciting when the molten metal comes splashing out at you. Next stop, Gnome Face!

the Tank of our Dreams

Royal Welding called, our ASME certified pressure vessel is ready! Sure it cost more and we didn't figure on the sales tax and delivery cost and undercoating charge and phitzavalves maintenance and the chrome polish contract but it is ours dammit! At least it will be once someone goes and picks it up. Road trip to Fullerton anyone?!?!
