This exhibit covers foundry businesses in Muskegon dating back to pre-1900. You can see a few of the many tools used in a small foundry including, drag & cope, sand mold, match plate, final product after being removed from the sand and some patterns. We recently added a video of the casting process that runs continuously. It is about 3 minutes long and explains the process from pattern to final product.
Arch Miller assisted with this exhibit and includes donations from Lift Tech and Century Forge.
