I just stumbled onto this site.

I was searching for some lost wax casting info.

I'm casting some bronze pulley's for my boat.

I made a silicone rubber mold to copy a pulley and make wax patterns

I would like to cast the about 16 pulleys in one on shot but I don't know how I should go about it with sprue and vents.

If any one has any good technique they would like to share I would be glad to listen.

Hi nice job, for lost wax casting, you will need to construct a tree with your wax parts stuck on to the end of each branch. The place that will be casting them should be able to do this.
Here's a good vid
