Macaulay’s Molds (Patterns & Coreboxes) Part II

Macaulay’s Molds (Patterns & Coreboxes) Part II

As promised, here is a follow up to my Tuesday post about the patterns discovered on a dusty shelf at the Macaulay Foundry as they were going out of business around 5 years ago. Miller, Offy, Novi and Meyer Drake patterns for racing engines were being tossed in the dumpster if they hadn’t been saved from oblivion by my fortunate friend Ron. It was the score of a lifetime, to say the least, and they couldn’t have got to a more appreciative guy. I’ve also included images of a partial engine casting he grabbed, and a mystery wooden crankshaft. This the remainder of the hasty images I snapped that night in his garage, but I’ll be featuring more of Ron’s extensive archives on vintage hot rod and racing literature in future posts, so stay tuned…
