    I haven't watched the next couple videos so maybe this has been resolved. But have you thought of measuring the wax carvings' volume and then measuring how much wax melts out, assuming you capture it, to ensure there is no wax left in the mold?

    Even the English dumped the the imperial system of measurement in 1964 (according to Google)

    Question: Why did you not start with some sort of Styrofoam block first to get 90% of form out of the way? That would have given you a quick working model to make the wax mold casting.

    Will, at 5:40 you mentioned that you can't tell the difference between the 220 grit and the 1000 grit. I think that is likely because of the grains in your investment material. I don't know if you can get different grades of that stuff. The vacuum chamber might help with that as well.

    I’m not sure what you are doing wrong but when I do lost wax casting I get every detail. Even fingerprints show up. You might want to try a different investment and you should be using brown wax. Green wax is for machining not working by hand.

  • Henrik Yngvesson
    Henrik Yngvesson 8 dager siden

    Why casting? Wouldn't it be much easier to just forge out a plate, cut it out with a jeweler saw and then engrave it. Unless you intend to do several of them, but then you should make a rubber mold of the first wax model so you can make more wax castings of the original.

    Small pieces like your test castings may cast better if you build a vacuum assist pouring setup to pull vacuum on the bottom of the flask while pouring and help suck the metal into the mold. So little metal doesn't have enough pressure to really push the metal into the mold and eliminate the "pock-marks" on its own. But debubbling the investment after mixing it and the whole flask after pouring in the mixture should definitely help too. The actual guard is probably tall enough that gravity alone should get it to fill properly when the time comes. Good luck!

  • Michael Downer

    Don't know if you guys have any in the shop, but if you're gonna do a lot of casting a jeweler's saw will be invaluable. You can really get in there and do some fine cutting in wax or metal. You can get a pretty decent one for under $20 and the blades are cheap. The down side is that the blades can snap pretty easily so you'll probably go through quite a few at first.

    Also if you pour the molten metal into a centrifugal caster you will get super clean details out of your castings. I used on a bunch when I casted silver and gold for Metalsmithing.

  • Artor Oak
    Artor Oak 9 dager siden

    If there had still been wax in your investment, you'd have bubbling and maybe an explosion. I think you let the investment sit and cool too long while you melted the metal, and your bronze froze as it filled the mold.

    I miight be missing something here, but I've worked with lost wax in the past and I was expecting you guys to chop into that block with either a band saw or a heated-wire-cutter thing, like the ones you'd use for cutting polystyrene
    The hand saw seems super cumbersome and it might lead to breaking the piece when it starts getting thinner.
    Sanding and filing is good for detailing but for the big parts you're just putting wax on your belt sanders and files.
