I'm bringing you along on my biggest babbitt pour since I left the shipyards back in 1994. The two bearings are from a work boat and supply support for a five-inch propeller shaft, which was re-machined to new custom diameters.
The Babbitt material is ASTM B-23 Grade 1 Babbitt
Melting point solidus 223C 433F
Melting point Liquidus 371C 700F
Pouring temp 441C 825F
Part One, prepping for the pour, clearing the housings and making sure they mate up fine, creating the molding components and prepping the new Paragon Kiln and firing it up for the first time.
Made in China is a warning label!
