Aniket sent me the first photos of the new 1000cc Musket V-Twin engine castings fresh out of the foundry. Those gorgeous wooden patterns we saw several weeks ago performed their job beautifully and the new aluminum castings look just perfect. The photos below step you through the process from making the sand molds to pouring the molten aluminum and finally we see the new castings emerge from the molds.
Watching this project evolve over time and take shape before our eyes is really a pleasure. The crucial point to remember is that this began in Aniket’s mind and became something we can all see because he decided to act on his idea and make it real. This is something many could possibly do, but so very few actually do, because it takes determination and commitment, there’s no easy way, there’s no shortcut and that’s why it’s so rare.
Great work, Aniket!
