I came across this today and wanted to share it with you.

And here is one being machined.

I just thought it would be interesting to those here.

Why didn't we think of that.
Really cool stuff.
When did I do that?

Both videos are very interesting!
Some with abstract thoughts will love the pattern maker's/casting video as ya really have to think.
I can see the casting in the core. Too cool.
Your links led me further to flights with The Flyer and far beyond in that era this evening!
Thanks Herb!
Since I lost my mind mind, I feel more liberated
