2008 Iron Pour

These are the molds, arranged so there's plenty of room for the ladlemen (or ladlepersons in some cases) to move around for the pour.
The sand is of course a safety thing, so any spilled hot iron- and yes, there were more than a few spills- wouldn't spall and damage the
concrete, or go running along and try to melt it's way into somebody's shoe. The molds are plain sand- local glacial sand-
mixed with a commercial binder not unlike an epoxy. Multi-part molds were banded together with crate strapping.
