  • Machinable wax tip might help someone someday.

    Was putting my Enco order together today when I ran across machinable wax as I've mentioned before on this forum. Think Sir John had an interest in it if memory is accurat. Well in reading on their write up on the ad it seems you can glue this wax to other wax pieces. Should make a neat way of doing lost wax investment.

    Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

    It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

    An alcohol lamp and a blowtube are the top items on the list of things to buy when setting up for jewelery making. It's used to "glue" the pieces of wax together for lost wax casting among many other uses and doesn't contaminate the wax with globs of dried snot.

      Thanks for that link YOD.

      I liked both the machinable wax and the case-hardening compound.

      Anyone with more info please?

        Ok here is the major player in the field of waxes for machining, and jewelry, lost wax casting. Also pattern making the old school way with wood.

        They bought out the original Kerr wax and the other one that supplied jewelry suppliers.
        Check out the videos on line and the info they have. They also have casting supplies but are not a small order retail outfit.
        They probably could point you to a seller in your area.

        Here is their hobbyist site. (retail) http://www.hobbycast.net/video.htm
        Also great for the videos and info

        Been there, probably broke it, doing that!

          Thanks for that Glen.

          A lot of very good useful info there.

          I recall there was a thread on this topic not so long ago - I will have to find the link.

            Here is another tip Tiffie. MS Word does have one good use. It understands a limited set of HTML (web page) commands. Look at the top of this thread for the "Thread Tools" link. Select "Printable Version". Then right click and pick "Select all" and then "Copy". Open MS Word and right click and select "Paste". It will then create a self contained document of the web page that is a much better way of copying web pages than saving the page as Web Page, Complete. Be aware that the copy process will work also on the non-printable version of the page but can take a very long time to complete as it must go fetch all the graphics and decide if it can deal with them.
