The first pour using the smaller of two cupola furnaces (small blast furnace), cast about 1800 pounds of iron into several fire box gratings for the Nevada Northern Railway, the letter “A” for a project at Amador High School, several weights used to hold the sand casting forms in place during pouring, a water gate wheel and several other small iron items.
