Recently someone asked about a wax tool they saw in Carles Codina’s
( [Source] Manual mini lathe
It’s called The Wax Machine System. I bought one from Otto Frei years
ago when they sold their remaining tools. They didn’t have all that
was originally available. Indexing gears were out of stock.
I believe Dixon was the source. The Customer Service Dept., 750
Washington Ave., Carlstadt, NJ 07072 is, I believe, the address of
That’s what I have. If anyone discovers more info, I’d be interested.
I would love to have the indexing gears. It’s a very well made tool.
I don’t know why they stopped producing the tool. For what it does I
don’t think there’s anything better.
One of my favorite wax tools is a mechanical pencil: Staedtler is one
brand. I use them as holders for rotary files, burrs, etc., that one
usually uses in a foredom or micro motor. I use these things as
scrapers. Sometimes the hand way is the better way - more control.
