Medical alert plaque wax patterns?


#1

Does anyone know where I might find wax patterns of a medical alert
bracelet plaque for casting?

I’ve been wading through the online wax catalogs, but only one has
the ability to search the site. The rest are not well labeled and not
search-able, and I’m not finding what I need.

You can get one from the drug store and cast it.
I know that Goldcast(Ont) carries the waxes. Very reliable.

I did a couple of custom medic alert style plates on CAD, and have
them in my wax files. They are a bit different from mainstream.
Contact me if you are interested.

Be very careful.

Years ago I worked for a company which was approached about making
medic alert pieces in other than stainless. A bit of investigation
revealed that there were severe copyright issues. Maybe make one for
your mom but production quantities would bring out the jack booted
mickey mouse IP lawyers. It was a shame, such a good idea all
around, but all we could do was to buy their stuff and set it into
gold jewellery. Rather tacky.

Hi Jeff

Thanks for the heads up. I knew there were copyright factors, so
when I did the plates, they didn’t bear any MA insignias in any way.
They were just ornate panograph engravable plates that were embossed
with the the words flip me over. They were for my wife and sister who
would react to the stainless.
