Spinning iron with Mark
We've had lots of requests to see some metal spinning in action.
Netherton Foundry uses this process to make iron frying pans, saucepans and woks.
A spun frying pan is typically half the weight of a cast iron pan, but with similar cooking properties.
We like to use our cast iron for casserole dishes.
We make our kettles from spun aluminium which is then hard anodised.
In this short video we first see Mark "showing off".
He starts by making a bowl and then turns it into a cone, by stretching and squeezing the metal.
Then we see the tooling for the spun iron Netherton Foundry 5" Blini pan.
