In the initial design phase of specific metal projects, you'll have to answer the dilemma of what to do with the project. Some projects are characterized by a fine line between the choices of whether to fabricate sheets of steel or sheet metal or cast it using a sand mould.

You may have been faced with a problem that you couldn't choose between a complicated design and then sand casting the idea. Or to keep the equipment for the foundry in the corner and then attempt to create the piece of sheet metal or steel.

Once you have mastered the techniques and tricks of casting sand, you'll find yourself determined to throw everything in your sight. Have you ever considered that the specific part or task you're planning to undertake could be made much faster-using fabrication? If the answer is to create the pattern from scratch? You must go through the whole casting process in the foundry: Making patterns, making Sand Moulds. Charge and melt a crucible made of metal and then pour in the hot metal.

There have been several instances in the workshop when this happens (to fabricate)

is the most cost-effective and fastest way to create an item using steel rather than cast aluminum or bronze. One of the main issues that most hobby casters face is the absence of machinery and equipment for correct fabrication procedures.

You don't have to feel like you're not a good metal

The worker simply because you don't have the general knowledge of workshop fabrication

equipment or skills, since you might not have had the chance to acquire these skills or acquire them, but with some guidance and the proper instructions, it's not the case.

It is difficult to figure out how to operate these difficult to master the following machines.

Pedestal or Bench Drill equipped with a drill table vice and an excellent assortment of drills made of stainless steel with high speed.

The collection of general workshop tools Hand tools, engineers' hammers, hacksaws, various types of files, center punches, engineer rulers and vernier callipers etc.

The Welding equipment: Oxy Welding Outfit, perfect for fabricating light sheet metal and bronze or brazing welding an electric arc welder with a range of 150-200 amps.

Bench Grinder A Bench Grinder's design takes other equipment pieces like linishing belt tools, drill grinding, and sharpening jigs.

Hand-held Angle Grinders Hand Held Angle Grinders are available in four sizes: 6", 6", and 9" sizes, ideal to finish the edge of metals, clean welding beads, or cut light sheet metal. Different resinoid discs can be mounted on the grinder. And last but not least is the bench lathe. It is most likely a luxury item for many homeowners, but it is worthwhile; it weighs in gold if you can afford it.

A Screw Cutting Bench Lathe Look out for a quality eco-friendly lathe from dealers or private sales. Lathes make a profit many times over in a short amount of period.
