Princess selling Petrobond sand

This caught my eye too and initially I was set to buy a couple of pails. But it is expensive for sure even on sale. After some research I decided to mix my own green sand using supplies from my local pottery making supplier instead.

wow. I bought 100lbs of that a long time ago from Budget Casting Supply for under $200 delivered....... Love that stuff.

Now BCS won't ship to Canada anymore, and doesn't offer the sand.

My green sand is still from about 20 years ago. Bought as bags from I don't remember where. It's coarser than I'd like but doesn't require a muller to reconstitute the burned petrobond which is one reason I've stayed away from that.

Just toss in some water and mix a day or two before.
I built a sand fluffer to break up the hard chunks. My Sand Fluffer
