The welding area features stick-arc, oxy-acetylene, MIG, TIG and a plasma arc cutter. The fabrication area has two anvils, an 80# German-made air hammer and a power roller.

The mold making and investment area has two sand mixers, a ceramic shell mixer as well as standard investment capabilities. These facilities are rounded out with three outside iron melters, a plaster room, wax working area (including a forty quart wax melter) and a well-equipped woodworking shop (housing a wood lathe, bandsaws, drill press, scroll saw, table saw, panel saw, miter saw, etc.). In addition, a two-ton overhead-motorized bridge crane as well as a motorized forklift serve the entire foundry area.
