Nerdgasm - casting pulleys

Holy crap - this is just plain awesome. This guy did sand casts of some pulley he needed for his EV bike conversion. Wow... My favorite part is him throwing old aluminum hard drive frames into the vat to be recycled. That's cool.

Great. Now I need to find a CNC mill machine. I'm sure those aren't cheap. The rest of the bits look pretty easy to come by though! Well, the metal lathe looks kind of expensive too. Okay, I won't be setting this up this weekend, but it's still cool as heck.

Here is the project page.
