Cleaning Jet-Sett


#1

Hi there,

regarding Jet-Sett, long ago I bought 2 ponunds, but stoped using it
because I found it quite annoying to get rid of small rests of
jet-sett that would end up stuck into holes and crevices, in case of
intricate pieces of jewellery -which are most of the pieces I work
on-. So the questions are:

-Is there some kind of solvent for jet-sett?

-Is there a clever method to avoid jet-sett getting stuck to pieces
when you take them out of it?

Thank you very much to all of you
Fernando

After I use it, I soak the piece of jewelry in ATTACK, That usually
always removes all of it.

Could you use a layer of plastic wrap between the Jett Sett and the
piece?? Or some other barrier or release?

I use pieces of aluminum foil sometimes to block the openings
underneath settings or other tight areas. Still challenging to remove
the thermo plastic but the foil does help. -Carrie Nune

If Jett Set is so hard to remove then why not just use
shelac…Tried & true for a very long time. I thought I just didn’t
know how to use Jett Set properly so I just stuck with the shelac.

There are often bits of Thermo-loc stuck to my jewellery after
setting too, but it comes off really easily when it’s at room
temperature - you can just pick it off. If there are any bits stuck
in nooks I can’t get to, I’ll use my scribe or a needle or something,
taking care to only touch the offending thermo-plastic and not the
metal. It cleans off really quickly. Not sure about Jet-Sett.

That’s a drastic and costly and potentially dangerous method.

It’s used for the jewelry business for removing glue from pearls. <>

I use acetone. Dissolves it really quick.
