  • Опубликовано: 14 апр 2018
  • In this video i am making a Mirror Polished Japanese Foil Ball from Molten Aluminium that i melted in my Metal Foundry.
    This was requested a lot after i posted the 'normal' Japanse Foil Ball video, so here it is !

    So, there has been this trend of a mirror polished foil ball? Let's take it to the next level by melting the foil first :) Who liked this video??? :-) PressTube OuT !

      "Enunciate" so 'Pronunciate', too ?
      "Mispronunciation" then ?

      Did I just misspell "mispronounciation" ?? Too funny lol.
      [edit: I just followed spellcheck/autocorrect. Lol

      RealityIsTheNow , well said. That's really cool of you.
      I was about to ask this Poster, "How is it spelled on the scientific Periodic Table ?", but you said all this perfectly.
      Aluminum it is.
      That Belgium foil wrap he showed also spelled it "folle" for "foil" so you're right, they ars just sticking with their own language, so his point is moot.
      I don't think it is mispronounced world-wide as far as you say it is.
      I would venture a guess all of South America pronounces it correctly as aluminum too.
      (joke: don't forget Hawaii in the Pacific which is close to Japan and all, who say it correctly too , even though that's the U.S ). Lol.
      I cannot imagine two scientists (one American, one British) being in a science Laboratory, and both not saying "Aluminum" correctly to each other.
      How the frigg did that misproununciation catch on ?? Lol

      PressTube That's pretty cool brother but next time leave the stem from the casting on, then you can use that to hold it in the lathe as you polish it & then just part it off & you'll have a full/ complete 'foil ball' without the hole on the bottom from drilling it in the milling machine.

    Servus/Hello Question:
    What is the brown cast sand made of?
    is it completely reusable?
    Do you have a recipe or do you buy it?
    I'm just looking for the mixing ratio because I only need some cm³ and have never worked with it
    i hope it's called cast sand - I translated it with Google...

    +PressTube, that foil wrap you showed is just that country spelling it the way it is mispronounced.
    All of the UK know it is spelled "Aluminum" but they know they are adding a syllable nicely.
    The English discoverer of aluminum named it "Aluminum" in a scientific journal.
    [ edit: it was called "Tin Foil" when tin was used in it. How Al u min ium got started, I'll never know.
    I believe any scientist would definitely say it "aluminum" like on the "Periodic Table of Elements".

      I forgot, nice video.
      Also, Aluminum foil has a coating on one side. You melted it down to it's elemental self. You worked with the Element "Aluminum" then, NOT 'alu MIN e um'.

    Don't inhale and don't touch it with bare hands when polishing.

    There is a quite number of sinkholes on the surface.
    Maybe you want to consider to remove the styrofoam ball by acteone (a common practice).
    In that case the walls of your form would not be disturbed by the styrofoam burning (local high pressure, acting onto the inner side of the form).
