He describes in detail the desired cooling of the molten metal to attain the optimum strength. He walks the reader through a technical explanation of determining head thickness and design for heat flow. Special attention is paid to the role of the rings and designing proper ring lands for high loads and temperature. Once the design has been completed, Chastain takes the reader through the process of making a pattern for the blank, a core box for molding a sand core, and creating the mold itself.

The key here is in accurately reproducing the original piston.

Metal Casting a Sand Casting Manual for the Small Foundry Vol 1

Special attention is paid to the role of the rings and designing proper ring lands for high loads and temperature. Once the design has been completed, Chastain takes the reader through the process of making a pattern for the blank, a core box for molding a sand core, and creating the mold itself.

The key here is in accurately reproducing the original piston. Although his early attempts relied on table saw and dowels, he recommends using a lathe to get the shape as exact as possible. The final step before casting the piston is making and then placing the core. When you take the piston blank out, the core pours out like dry sand.

  7. Once the pour has been made, Chastain walks the project through to completion, milling out the piston, cutting grooves and using the lathe. Steve Chastain, a Mechanical and Materials Engineer, shows the beginner how to make a sand mold and then how to hone your skill to produce high quality castings. Written in non-technical terms, the sand casting manuals begine by melting cans over a charcoal fire and end by casting a cylinder head.
