Excerpt from Foundry Work: A Text on Molding, Dry-Sand Core-Making, and the Melting and Mixing of Metals

In preparing this book, it has been the author's aim to provide a suitable text for schools and-colleges. And for use by apprentices in commercial shops. It'is elementary to the extent that the student can grasp the fundamental principles of foundry work, yet deep enough to give a general working knowledge of foundry practice.

The book consists of three parts. The first will enable the student to secure a general knowledge of foundry work, of the sizes and types of blast furnaces, and of the making of pig iron.

The second provides instructions for practice in molding, coremaking and other parts of foundry work.

The third part is devoted to the mixing and melting of metals.

The material contained in this volume was Obtained as a direct result of the author's experience in teaching apprentices in commercial shops and engineering students at Purdue University. The information on making coke, mining iron ore, operating blast furnaces, and chemical analysis of iron has been inserted to round out the volume and represents good commercial, practice.

For many of the drawings the author is indebted to students taking foundry work under him, and for other illustrations to foundry supply firms.
