"giant column of flame" is a good thing to avoid in casting. Some might even call it a warning sign.

There's a guy on Youtube going by "myfordboy" who is like the Bob Ross of casting. His shit is so zen to watch.

My professor was a "badass biker" who wanted to kill that guy for that stunt. And other things. I can hear him at the end. Even badass bikers sometimes lay awake at night worrying about a student getting a third degree burn and shutting down every iron foundry program in the country

I will check out your video when I get a chance. I like it when I force the YouTube algorithm to show me stuff like that for like a week

Yeah, foundry guys and machine shop guys have the stories that you don't wanna hear too much. half the machine shop stuff you can't watch because it trips Youtube's gore filter. Jewelers can't really compete but they can try; the kilns at my program didn't have peep holes because my instructor had someone in her grad program who peered through it while she shut the door, thereby puffing a couple liters of 1400 degree air right at her cornea.

Autoplay on myfordboy is like a japanese meditation.
