Casting With stones in

Casting with the stone in the wax I have been doing a lot of
trial and error with this process. Do any of you have any
experience with this method of casting. Specifically I have
trouble with gold flashing into the inclusions of the stones if
any are present. Also would an induction caster work better for
this, and if so where can I find one used or at a reasonable
price. RED

Red, AJM (American Jewelry Manufacturer) magazine just had a
nice article on casting stones in place. We don’t do it much. It
seems to be better for larger production than one of a kind.
