Above video: Kevin Brownlee, Pat Costello and I built this homemade foundry for our personal use. Kevin's father (the sculptor E. M. "Mick" Brownlee) and I shared a foundry in Honolulu in the late 1960s and 1970s. The furnace is newly built, but the lift tongs, ring shank and many other tools are the same ones we used in Hawai'i back in the day.
