I cut the pump off of mine a while ago because it had an uncontrollable leak. I'll post some internals pictures soon.

In Topic: Wax + Molten Bronze = Huge Fire

10 May 2010 - 09:10 PM

So do you just get the bronze to a good heat and drop it in?

The bronze was already in the crucible and was molten when we dropped the wax in.

That video is odd. Why would they waste the wax? It is used to make molds for casting the bronze and its not cheap. I do a bit of metal casting in my backyard frequently. Are there any other metal casters on this forum?

I have some pictures of what I do on my website

Yes the site has a lot of randomness, just go to the casting section.

We had a bunch of left over wax and seeing that happen was definitely worth it. I cast my whole arm in alginate last summer (the time this video was taken), filled the mold with wax, took the wax out, sprued it, covered it in plaster, and put it through the burnout kiln. But then, the thermocouples on the kiln broke so the firing was cut off and the sudden temperature change screwed up all of the plaster molds. I had planned to cast my arm in alternating layers of aluminum and bronze, though when the molten metal was poured in, it seeped through the cracks in the plaster made by the sudden temperature changes which pretty much ruined the whole thing.

The plunger head may just need to be lubricated (with a silicone based lubricant).
