Lost wax casting


#1
I`m interested in technique of how to make lost wax casting,
and what kind of tools I need. thank you

Judith, get a copy of ‘Practical Casting’, 122 pages, (ISBN #
0-9615984-0-9) by Tim McCreight. It’s about $18.00 at most
jeweler’s supply houses. It covers just about everything you’ll
need in the line of equipment & technique. You’ll use it for
years.

Are you planning on doing the whole process youself. There is
quite a lot of equipment needed and quite a high capital outlay.
I would suggest making the patterns yourself from metal or wax,
and then get a casting company to do the casting for you. What
metal are you planning on casting in? Richard W UK
