T1.5 Deluxe Vacuum Casting Machine
T1.5 Deluxe Vacuum Casting Machine

Our Price: $1,723.68

Item #: 265-1580

For both standard and perforated flasks, our benchtop caster allows you to invest your flasks under vacuum on the left side of the machine and vacuum cast on the right side.

Turn the control handle left to "Investment Table," and the powerful 3 CFM internal vacuum pump pulls air bubbles from the investment under a 9" diameter x 8-1/2" high bell jar.

Turn the handle to "Casting Chamber," and vacuum is redirected to the casting side. Casts both standard and perforated flasks which fit into the well on right side of machine so that vacuum pulls from both the walls and bottom of the flask, ensuring a complete fill and denser casting. T1.5 includes:
  • Two adapter plates to cast 3-1/2" and 4" dia. perforated flasks (no adapter plate needed for 5" flasks)
  • Adapter plate to cast solid-wall flasks
  • Bell jar, flask tongs, vacuum & casting pads, 1 pt. vacuum pump oil
  • 3-1/2" x 4" perforated flask, 3-1/2" sprue base

4 of 5 Solid but some caveats August 10, 2023
Reviewer: Adam Greenwood from Montague PEI  
Bought this machine and have cast 8-9 times.  After a few attempts it’s working well.  Well built.
The bad news…
-Tongs are only strong enough for a 3” x 3” flask anything bigger and you’ll drop the flask!
-Make sure to store the plastic dome away from the machine, If you vacuum a flask with it on the vacuum won’t release!
-The included 4” rubber gasket isn’t thick enough for multiple casts. Ended up cutting a hole out of the pin hole gasket. Stock up on gaskets, they wear out fast.

All that aside, I would recommend it to a friend.
