    5 years ago we moved, so there was a new GoP, but the foundry division hasn't been up and running since then. However, the furnace has been refurbed, some new patterns made, and today we had the first pour. I poured a few bits for my other halfs XS 650, and some blanks to machine into a fork seal driver.

    My novice mate earning his keep re conditioning the sand after the first pour. He also cast himself an ashtray (which is what I get all the newbies to do as their first casting)

    Pile of raw castings, gates and risers still attached.
