A Letter From: Col Croucher.
Dear Friend,

We have prepared a down to earth no nonsense hobby foundry learning program for you: The Blue Print For Success Learning Course, it is designed to help you to learn and understand how to build, and operate your own successful hobby foundry.

But first, a brief overview to enable you to choose the best option.

  1. Purchase & Download The Entire Learning Program. All it takes is just a few clicks, and a bit of download time.
  2. Purchase the entire program course on CD ROM. Mail delivery will take about 8 or 10 days, but when your CD arrives, you will be able to learn & advance at your own pace. Only you will know which option is best for you.
No matter which option you choose, all of the lesson material is exactly the same, the only advantage with the download is that it costs less, and you'll be able to download your Foundry course program straight away after the purchase. The CD ROM option costs a little more to cover the production and shipping costs.   

The Blue Print Success learning program is a great way to learn the ropes about hobby metal casting.

The existing curriculum has been revised with new material which includes thirty nine special info & multi-page information sheets of unique foundry information to help you. Including some great little gems, such as crucible sizing charts, a heap of quick reference guide sheets are also included. This material and info has been re-worked, revised, expanded, and includes a new intro section on LFC or lost foam casting... a popular method of making patterns for metal casting.

If like most people in this game, you are a 
practical type & not afraid to roll up the sleeves to have a go, like the people in the former Metal Casting 2008 ebook, or the Hobby Casting Craftsmen, as it is now known, a hugely popular ebook with downloads numbering in the 1000s, it's a great read, and this ebook alone has been the catalyst for many people to try their hand at hobby metal casting, and remember, the people featured in that ebook are just ordinary folks who simply wanted to learn how to cast metal...
And think about this, if they can do it... So can you. 

Is It Possible To Make Some Cash From Your Hobby Foundry?

Well yes, but keep that idea in mind for the future, (We just thought we would mention that aspect of the hobby) but in reality, some of our hobby foundry clients are making and selling lots of unique cast metal products for cold hard cash... Amazing things do happen!

All they did was to discover a small niche product, perfect the product, set up a simple marketing plan, and bingo, they were soon making sales (Kaching$). We are not saying you'll make any money at all, but it is something that you should keep in mind for the future because it really is possible!

One of our Aussie clients makes and sells a small cast aluminium widget which costs peanuts to produce, but he sells the widgets for $42.00 each on eBay... now that's pretty cool considering the product is made from "free" scrap aluminium! For privacy reasons we cant reveal the product, but Tim was very happy about his little foundry product the last time we spoke to him.

The process was simple; he simply set out to learn all he could about the foundry craft, then he applied that knowledge to develop, produce, & sell his product, this home manufactured product makes Tim quite a bit of cash each week! A nice addition on top of his normal salary, money for jam as they say.

The Hobby Foundry Blue Print Success Learning Course.

This program is designed to help you learn about metal casting in as short a time as possible, how successful you become will depend on how much effort you are willing to apply, each lesson module will take you forward "one step at a time" towards your ultimate goal, it does not matter what your day job is, if you want to learn how to do hobby foundry work, we'll show you how, as long as you are willing to learn, and you are keen to have a go.

Perhaps you are involved in some type of profession, and you want to switch off on the weekends, then this is the the metal craft for you. 

We've had people from all walks of life; farmers, vintage car & motorcycle restorers, artist's, electricians, there are also several community based education facilities that use our simple approach to metal casting to teach others, the Coffee County High School in Manchester Tennessee USA have used our instruction manuals to teach their students about metal casting, metal craft artists, musical instrument makers, underwater photographers, yes, I kid you not, there are scientists, & CEO’s of large Corporations, as well as people who work on oil rigs out in the North Sea, military guys on their tour of duty, ultra light aircraft builders... people who want to make special things, and have a desire to learn how to cast metal!

One of the big advantages of producing your own metal castings is the control you have over the entire process, not to mention the money you'll save. Castings can range in weight from just a few grams, up to several KGs, anything from fishing sinker dies, special parts for veteran, vintage & classic car or motorcycle restorations, the sky is the limit!

And to be honest, you'll have fun trying to find a commercial foundry to cast odd bits and pieces for you?

For starters, the cost will astound you if a new pattern is required, but there's absolutely no need to go down that route when you have your own mini foundry, just make  your own pattern, and do your own castings, with a bit of practice, it is almost that easy. 

The other day, a visitor arrived at our little foundry to look at some small cast parts we produced for a classic sports car
restoration; He studied the parts carefully; then said;

"It must be awesome to be able to make things like this". yes sir, it sure is awesome to be able to make things that you just cant buy for love nor money... "This is the really HUGE advantage" of having your own small hobby foundry!"

"You can make things when you want, how you want, as often as you want!"

There are so many possibilities with your hobby foundry.

Most people understand that it's best to begin with small simple projects, then slowly build up to the challenging projects, It's a positive pathway to success, and will help you to avoid gut wrenching failures, but be warned, there will be failures, but don't let that discourage you, the odd failure here and there is often an excellent teacher.

Perhaps today, we'd like to help you to begin a new metal craft journey and show you "How to set up your own hobby foundry".

There is something very special about the first time you melt and pour molten metal… even if it's into a simple ingot mould... it's fun... and magic to watch, but at the same time you do have to be extremely careful when working with molten metal, the foundry is not the place to be careless, handling molten metal is a serious business - As we always say... it's safety first!

When You Practice The Methods & Skills Outlined In The Blue Print Success Program, you will:

  • Enjoy the freedom to be a creative metal caster - Once you begin to understand what can be achieved with metal casting, the sky really is the limit.
  • Become a leading light in your hobby - No longer will you have to drool over what other people are creating, now you could be the one that others look up to. Which means no more fence sitting for you, or looking on with envy!
  • Amaze your friends with your latest cast metal creations - They will shake their heads in disbelief as you explain how you made the patterns, ram the sand molds, then melt and pour the metal, you're bound to capture their attention.

  • Your mind will go into overdrive, you'll be thinking about so many different things that you'll want to create - And that is the whole purpose of this hobby, with your metal casting skills, you'll always have the ability to make unique parts & things that are simply not available off the shelf anywhere... unique items that would otherwise cost a small fortune to have made commercially.

    This is what Tim Taft had to say about our hobby foundry info.

    Your hobby foundry info opened up and inspired my
    brain to do more than I've ever dreamed possible.

      Read what Mike Burks said.
Hi Col. Thank you for the foundry ebooks. I'm not only reading your ebook material, but studying it with great care & detail. It's very interesting, and is a delight to read and discover things which were unknown. I'm now planning my future activities in metal casting, beginning with the furnace.
Thank you again and good luck.

Mike Burks. North Texas, USA. 

I should point out to you, that both Glen & Mike bought the original standard ebook package a long, long time ago, with the revision & expanded knowledge base, I would imagine that they would be really over the moon with the new hobby foundry course.

Perhaps you are wondering; "What can I expect to achieve with my metal casting skills?
Read what professional pattern maker Stuart said. 

Most projects begin with a single, simple idea, and that's a great starting point, but it's the knowledge & know how you'll learn that will transform your seed idea into a pattern, then into the sand mould... and finally to melt & pour the aluminium or
bronze.... That will spell success for you.

You'll also find that building your own tools and equipment can be just as much fun as pouring the metal, saving you money, and reaping so much more personal reward, because with every new skill you learn, you'll be banking the skills and use them for the rest of your life!
