Hello fello waxers:
lets start with what your favorite tool is for cutting wax.
I use gravers, X-Acto knifes and I make tools from sheet stock for
any special affects. I use the MAT wax lathe to turn the inner and
outer diameters of my waxes. I use course metal type files for
I prefer to work with the hard green wax because it is not
malleable like the blue and purple wax and it holds an edge better.
I can turn a comfort-fit type band in no time. I use a large
cylinder bur to cut away large amounts of wax or to round out the
inner diameter of the ring, the wax lathe usually leaves a slightly
smaller diameter the further in you cut.
