Here are a couple casting projects I did a few weeks ago.
Lanyard ring and fastener
Copper machinist hammer
Bronze machinist hammer
Most of us allready have a forge and with a $16 graphite crucible and some mould material you can start casting. It is pretty cool playing with yellow hot molten metal. Kinda addicting to!!

If you machine a shape (ie a rough pommel or guard) into a block of stainless and machine a matching lid that bolts down onto it then pour the metal into it from the side it seems to make a damn good cast, plus the finished product just falls right out once you unbolt it without having to destroy the mold. tried it with alluminium have to see if it works with other alloys.
i'll post pictures as soon as i can. hope this helps.
