Thanks for the offer, but I've got loads of places I can scrounge here locally. As for the pencil on the teachers desk... the guy I replaced had TWO hand crankers and TWO electric sharpeners. Guess he wanted to be sure pencils were sharp?! I tossed the two electrics, they were worthless. One of them is still in use, and one of them is now gas powered.

Lost wood casting, pack it in sand then stick it in a plasma oven.

Authenticity; "they'll never know" the part isn't original.

I didn't have material that size around the shop, and would've had to buy or borrow something.

I wanted to make a test piece to make sure the dimensions were correct, which is faster to do with a wood pattern than a metal one. This is a wood shop, and for parts that are supposed to be cast, it is usually cheaper and easier for me to make a pattern than to mill it from solid stock.

Our local Amish-run foundry charges by the pound. The casting cost me $9.00.
