Publisher Comments:


This manual is intended primarily for use by foundry personnel aboard repair ships and tenders. The recommended practices are based on procedures proved workable under Navy conditions and are supplemented by information form industrial sources.

This manual has been written with the "how-to-do-it" idea as the principal aim. Discussions as to the "why" of certain procedures have been kept to a minimum. This manual contains information that should result in the production of consistently better castings by repair ship personnel.

Synopsis:

In 1958 the government did something right in publishing this heavily illustrated how-to manual to teach swabs how to make castings. Covers everything from molding and pouring to shaking out.
