Foundries played a large part in Vulcan’s history; Vulcan started as one and until shortly after World War II Vulcan had its own foundry. The classic Warrington-Vulcan and Super-Vulcan hammers were mostly sand cast, with all of the material difficulties and variations that went with that.
It’s interesting to note that, when I visited the then-Soviet Union in 1990, the tour group I was with experienced a departure delay from then-Leningrad. We were sitting around and someone noted a strange smell in the air. I took a whiff and said, “It’s a foundry smell.” A well known odour to Vulcan personnel…we hope you find this posting of interest.
