Distributer Cups

PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: From behind the camera lens, removing the billets appears as mysterious as any alchemical incantation. With the flow of metal halted, Willy removes and cleans the distributer cups. The metal flows from the crucible to the cups which distribute and slow the flow of metal into the mold and give it time to harden. The cups must be removed before the fresh billets can be lifted.

This journey is fascinating and educational for me. So much that I would not have seen except for you.

So much I wouldn't have seen but for all the people who have given me access and answered my questions. Thanks for stopping by and for your comment, Tim.
