Abstract : A method and apparatus for spin casting a castable material into a cylindrical body. The method comprises the steps of rotating an elongated cylindrical body about its longitudinal axis, applying an extrudable uncured material as a continuous stram in helical fashion from one point in the body to another point, continuing to rotate the body until the material is leveled and at least partially curing the material while continuing to rotate the body. The apparatus comprises means for holding and spinning an elongated cylindrical body, and extruder means for providing a continuous stream of an extrudable uncured material in a desired fashion along the inside of the cylindrical body.
