Customer Story - Randy Fong – ToAuto Metal Studio

Customer Story - Randy Fong

Randy is an individual that takes engineering to a new hobby level.  He takes scrap metal and turns into a practical items and sometimes a work of art. Weekends is when the furnace lights up and the smelting/melting begins in his makeshift studio.

In the beginning, things started simple  with aluminum, brass and copper melts.  As time went by and mistakes occurred, the knowledge and craftsmanship improved.  Melts got more intense and projects got more complex. Simple ingot projects turned into Marvel characters and amazing weapons for show.

And if you ask, “How does a project start off?. First, he used his engineer skills to draw out a plan.  Then he prints out a 3D print (by using the amazing ToAuto Pyramid printer) to create a mold out of green sand. The hot metal is poured from the ToAuto furnace and you have yourself an Axe, a Thor Hammer, a Kunai and many other amazing items.

All these creations have been documented on his Youtube channel, What2Melt. Until now he has more than 400 subscribes. Now Randy has established a small metal craft studio at home, and occasionally provides some customized services. Randy told us that metal smelting has brought a lot of changes and fun to his life. If more people like his work in the future, metal craft will become his job in the future.
