Last week the team at the Port Townsend Foundry was pouring turnbuckles for Schooner Martha. The process is quite impressive. While the furnace heated up the ingots of aluminum bronze in the crucible, Alan and Pete prepared the molds of sand and then moved them to the pouring line. Once cooled, they sandblast and grind the pieces to perfection before being installed onboard Martha. Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op launched Martha last week and the work will continue at Point Hudson.
