Come visit me in Chicago. The bronze foundry under the Museum of the Art Institute can hot cast something like two tons of molten bronze.
It's two levels below the street in a sub-basement. Saw it in the 90s. Some SAIC students smuggled a dead racehorse down there, made a mold from it and cast it in bronze, got the horse out before the professors saw it. They told me it had a heart attack out at Arlington race track and solved all their horse statue problems.
