Hi, Since many years, I am in front of the same problem when I
start the teach the 20th lesson (bijou articul=E9) articulated
bracelet. By the past, I was using (leads for pencils…I don’t
know this word in english and hope you will understand) inside
the hinges of the wax links to keep them hollow during casting.
For about ten years the leads melt in the furnace and results in
full hinges that have to be drill. So, I stopped to demonstrate
this technique and only explain it, hoping someone will find the
good leads. I bought a lot of different brands and I have made
tests over tests without result. Does anyone knows a brand of
lead who will not melt or the alternative to my problem.
