I have not paid a lot of attention to this thread, although I also
wanted to switch my injection wax to something more "carvable"
recently. I requested a sample of the wax Mr. Knight refers to, and
yes it does have properties desirable for filing and machining,
however after working with it for a couple of months, I think you may
want to give it careful consideration before purchasing.
First, when trying to purchase some SuperCera Gold, I discovered the
minimum quantity I could order was 50 lbs. As a small volume wax
user, this is a considerable commitment for me to make when buying
wax, over $200 when delivered.
Second, after a week or so of regular use, we found that while it
does work well for carving, it also is extremely brittle, and my wax
person has had an awful time with scraping waxes that break in normal
production. Also when you do need to file on a wax, you better have
several waxes at hand as the slightest snag on the file will result
in you holding onto the bottom part of a broken wax and reaching for
another to begin all over again.
If you are fortunate enough to have two wax pots, and want to invest
the cash for wax that does not load up your files, then this wax
would be a good idea. I am preparing right now to order some
traditional injection wax and remove the SuperCera. I may find a use
for it sometime in the future, but I honestly feel that the problems
outweigh the benefits.
