I would like to add a yes to home casting operations. I don't know about commercially viable casting operations, but I know of many who started casting based off the books on the subject written by Dave Gingerly sold through the lindsey publications catalog. I cast a quart or two of aluminum when I need a part

for something with a propane brush burner and a length of class A stainless chimney pipe.

The books are how to and only address the essentials. Kurt Schafer, who is on this list, has set up quite the backyard foundry and might be able to comment on this better than I.

Whoever asked, even if you never end up using your homemade equipment forever, building your own tools is the best teacher.

Good Luck.
