I few pic for those of you that may be thinking of building a spin casting machine. Some pics of exactly how it works so you dont have to reinvent the wheel. The main shaft with platten and pulley is mounted through (2) 1 1/4 flat pillow blocks. Then there is a secondary shaft below with a bearing that just pushes up on a shaft through the main pulley assemble which pushes on a steel plate and clamps the mold. Pretty simple actually. I bet you could make one for about $200 with ebay and lots of junk around.

I was just giving here a shake down and testing her out. Im going to be doing crappie jig heads. I just got the machine painted today and i have a second machine to go pick up. Industrial looking green hammered finish.

Looks like that thing will put out a serious amount of jig heads
