          From cast iron? Doable but CI isn't as easy to melt as aluminum esp in larger quanties. Might find a local foundry to cast some up to your pattern...Bob

              It's not worth the trouble of casting your own when you can buy them delivered free. http://www.tracknfieldgear.com/store...945077413a0a5c

                What are you wanting to make? I had inquired about a similar topic on here a while back and had some good feedback from people.
