Rio's vacuum wax injector


#1

to all - is anyone out there having success with the vacuum assit wax
injector from rio grande ? (i have been interested in some higher
quality injected wax models and i have and i have switched wax and
fine tuned and calibrated until i’m worn out ) any how, if some one
out there who is using this wax injector successfuly or not could
reply to me on or off list i would consider it a great act of
generosity and extend an act in kind. my big question is does it
really live up to at least 95% of what the sales pitch in the
catalogue claims it can do - goo

At the risk of being obvious, have you tried Rio’s technical staff?

I did production casting for 12 years, my employee could shoot about
30 waxes an hour, 35 hours a week with a wax pot that has a nozzle
that the mold in put on and pushing down causes the wax to be
injected into the mold. Unless the mold required a extraordinary
amount of wax, I have not had a mold that could not be filled, and I
have done rings, earrings, pendants, belt buckles without any
problems. I always thought the air pressure wax injectors were
overkill. I have had some experience with pressurized pots, and you
have to adjust the pressure for different molds which was a pain in
the tukus. I inherited a wax pot that requires an air compressor
that I would be happy to sell. If anyone in interested, email me
offline please. I have a small air compressor that came with it I can
include. The one I have is similar to the Rio model 700-043.

My post was not clear. The wax pot I use is like the Rio model the
one I want to sell is not like the Rio model.
