The Process Of Casting Metal

Even in this modern day, some basic hand tools are still very must for sheet metal work, no matter a small metal shop or a large one. You should purchase your own set of hand tools and practice using them until you are very proficient. Once you reach that point, metal fabrication work can be a very satisfying and productive work!

Assembling the frame is a straight forward system starting from the ground up. Upright beams are connected to the anchor bolts that have been set into the concrete floor. The overhead rafters are bolted to these usually by lifting with a crane. Roof purlins are then connected to the rafters. They are spaced in a manner that will allow sections of sheet metal that form the roof to be easily attached.

But what do you expect from a guy who moved from the Midwest to California to start an art studio? Yes. He really did.

Just take a close look at the sluices being offered by the manufacturers, and that will show you how to build your own sluice box. It won’t be difficult to get some ideas to make your own plans. Sluice boxes can be made out of wood, aluminum, plastic or steel. Injection molded plastic is not really an option easily available to the do-it-yourself prospector, and steel has a tendency to rust, so wood and aluminum are the preferred options.

The basic installation of it is simply by fitting these sheets over the wooden roof. It will overlap and how each fits into place is decided by the pitch of the wooden roof.

As you can see these are a few of the tools you might need when creating metal art. There are many others we didn’t describe, but these are some of the basics of metal artwork.
