Homemade Trolling Motor Mount

3 posts in this topic

i cast a couple of these out of aluminum in a home made foundry. I made the pattern out of 3/8" plywood and fillete the corners with bondo. I presed the sand around it in the two peice mold box, opened it, removed the pattern then poured the Aluminum.

There is not an electric trolling motor made that could break this. I bolted a 1/2" plywood face on it so the motor would not vibrate loose.

Good on you TW, good to see someone having a go - it looks like you know what you are doing but watch out you don't get molten aluminium in the face (wet sand) I used to do it for a living years back.
