Head Start is an early educational experience for low income rug rats. 7 of the last 8 years my wife and I have made small graduation medallions for local head start students on a volunteer basis. A child's first graduation should be a little special.

Making the molds in a stack is very efficient for mass producing "one-sided" castings.

                                                           Center dowel forms sprue cavity.

  Smooth with trowel.                                              Rap with rammer to loosen.

  Flip on to board.                                                  Remove pattern box.

Patterns are too close to edge, leave at least 1/2 inch.     Carefully place on stack.

Stacks after pouring!

     MEGACASTINGS!
