Hello and good afternoon,
I normally fabricate from stock metal or Delft cast the few items
that I make for my small line that goes to only one retailer in
I am now at a point where I need to have a few things professionally
cast in order to reduce metal waste or porosity from Delft casting.
I want to try making my own wax trees and was wondering if anyone
could share any improvised wax sprue attaching tools for me to try
before investing more? I heard of people using low temperature
soldering irons and glue guns, but does anyone have any advice on
creating their own tips? Model RC makers have used brass tubing to
attach to their glue guns for example.
I could try the alcohol lamp to heat up an instrument but I assume
this would “dirty” the wax?
As you can tell, I’ve not yet been professionally taught wax
working. I normally making things directly from my drawings.
