    how to cast a yoke...B-777 ?

    I have modled a b-777 yoke out of clay, but have not had the guts to try and cast it. the rosin is well $$. as i don't have large sums of money for the sim, I am a one man band, and the wife thinks I have lost it, I make as much from scratch as I can. for example, My overhead panel is 100% home made. I drew the pannels in photo shop then printed them to paper. I then mounted them on the back side of 1/8 plexe glass. Next I cut the micro switches out with a very fine blade jig saw. I mounted the pannels in a frame and hung it in the sim. I back light this with soft neon lamps. works for me. Question, I some time ago found a site who were making yokes but can't find it now. any one know the one I mean?. I need cheep parts. Thanks. Ron.
