Looking for a cast iron foundry since I found out Silverton Foundry closed


I need to make sure I can get some more castings made of 


Trojan and Emerson 4 & 6 wing hubs before I sell the last ones I have


Is there anyone out there that can hook me up with a cast iron foundry that will deal with loose patterns and small orders


Help needed

Hello brother Jim, good to see you are still kicking!  I used Cattail for several years and they were really good & easy to deal with, but I'm not sure they are still active. Worth a call or a note to check it out as I had them cast 4 & 6 wing hubs not finished machined and never had a problem. An Amish business in Lancaster County, PA phone # 717-768-7323 & mail address: Cattail Foundry, 167 W. Cattail Rd., Gordonville, PA 17529  Take care Ol friend

Cat Tail does great work. They’re Amish, so don’t use phones. That number rings at a business next door. I just send the part, explain what I want. A few weeks from now a package will arrive. It’ll have your parts and a Bill inside.

There's also a foundry near me called Crosbie Foundry and they've been in business since the 1920s, although I've never dealt with them before but I'm assuming they would be pretty comparable to some of the foundries mentioned by others here.

Jim do you have a plug for the castings? There is a foundry near me that will cast them for $30.00 each but won’t  do them from an original part, why I don’t know.  They will cast them in iron, brass or bronze for that price, in speaking to other members the cost is somewhat high but there work is good.

Do you guys have problems with shrinkage?

( I should be clear... of the cast iron parts). I’m told that cast iron shrinks 10-15% and that the plug should be that factor larger to compensate.  

:D

Ha ha!  I had some Victor tank badges casted a few years back and the yellow brass shrinks as well.  From what I remember is was roughly 1/16" Smaller than the original.  Enough to notice holding on top of each other but not really a big deal.  I imagine the hubs would be a bit smaller also but probably not enough to adversely affect the integrity of it.  I would like to hear some more replies to your question.

So it looks like around 1-2% shrinkage for grey cast iron.  It's not enough to worry about.

This is interesting:

Cerrosafe shrinks during the first 30 minutes of cooling and then at the end of an hour, is EXACTLY chamber size. At the end of 200 hours it will have expanded approximately .0025".

The old GM Foundry shrink rule was 1/16” per foot
