Robert casts sterling silver or bronze into original design and historic reproduction pendants, earrings and cloak clasps. His work is known for its high quality, exquisite detail and meticulous finishing. At least her husband says she does. Lost wax casting is a technology that has been used for thousands of years. To make something with lost wax casting, you must first make a wax model. This can be as simple as a textured oval or as complex as a three dimensional squid or roller skate.
To do this, you will need special wax, some simple tools, and, possibly, a heat source such as a candle or alcohol lamp. Some people like to get a hard wax and carve it, while others like a very soft wax they can shape with their fingers. I use an in-between method.
I use an inexpensive alcohol lamp to heat sheets or wires of wax until they are malleable. I make a basic shape and then attach other bits of wax, using the alcohol lamp to partially melt them so they will hold together.
I use wax carving tools that are like old fashioned dental tools to help shape and to add texture and detail.
Once I have made a wax model that I like, I put it in a heavy gauge metal flask. The flask is basically a very sturdy tube with a removable end cap. Once the wax is secured inside I pour in casting investment, which is a kind of plaster. When the plaster hardens I put the flask into a kiln so that the heat will melt out all the wax. When the wax is gone, there is a negative image of my model left in the plaster.
I place the flask that has the negative image of my model surrounded by plaster on one end of the arm of a spring driven centrifuge casting machine. I put a crucible filled with bits of sterling silver called casting grain on the other end of the casting machine arm. Next, I use an oxyacetylene torch to melt the sterling silver, then I let loose the catch on the spring driven centrifuge arm.
I must admit that I have been burned a few times over the years. After allowing a little time for the metal to cool and harden, I take the flask and put it in a bucket of water to dissolve the plaster. I now have a rough sterling silver casting of my wax model. Once I have the rough casting, I use a flex shaft and a tumbler to turn my rough casting into a beautiful, shining sterling silver pendant.
When people tell me they would like to learn how to make things using lost wax casting, I tell them to look for classes at their local community colleges or adult schools. This way they can practice with all the different equipment to see what tools they like before they spend their money on it. Wax, alcohol lamps, wax carving tools, and even tumblers are not expensive, but kilns, a centrifuge casting machine, and flex shafts can add up.

Casting is a manufacturing process in which a liquid material is usually poured into a mold , which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowed to solidify. The solidified part is also known as a casting , which is ejected or broken out of the mold to complete the process. Casting materials are usually metals or various time setting materials that cure after mixing two or more components together; examples are epoxy , concrete , plaster and clay. Casting is most often used for making complex shapes that would be otherwise difficult or uneconomical to make by other methods. Heavy equipment like machine tool beds, ships' propellers, etc. Casting is a 7,year-old process.
Sales Contacts. By: Dave Olsen. Factors such as design requirements, cost, and feasibility to manufacture dictate which casting process is most suitable to manufacture a product. This article describing investment casting is intended to help you make an informed casting decision. Investment casting produces precise components while minimizing material waste, energy, and subsequent machining. It can also ensure the production of very intricate parts.

Investment casting is an industrial process based on lost-wax casting , one of the oldest known metal-forming techniques. Investment casting has been used in various forms for the last 5, years. In its earliest forms, beeswax was used to form patterns necessary for the casting process. Today, more advanced waxes, refractory materials and specialist alloys are typically used for making patterns. Investment casting is valued for its ability to produce components with accuracy, repeatability, versatility and integrity in a variety of metals and high-performance alloys. The fragile wax patterns must withstand forces encountered during the mold making. Much of the wax used in investment casting can be reclaimed and reused.

A great guide on lost wax - for the full PDF version please click here. Welcome to the world of lost wax casting. It is the Authors intention to impart the necessary information and process that is vital in being successful in this endeavor. This original manuscript was first written in Spanish under the name, Secretos, which of course translated means, secrets.
This book is a basic introduction to lost-wax casting with emphasis on jewelry making. It is designed to be used both as a textbook and a reference book and is directed primarily at beginners. Experienced casters, however, will probably find some useful ideas; they may even find some new techniques. Heavy emphasis is placed upon understanding why things are done in a particular way, rather than simply presenting a set of cookbook rules that will always work. The book is also available from the publisher in a 8.
Да поможет нам Бог, - прошептала. - Мы можем принять участие в аукционе. Стратмор покачал головой: - Танкадо дал нам шанс.
Мне очень важно получить ее именно. - Это невозможно, - раздраженно ответила женщина. - Мы очень заняты.
У него счастливая миури - счастливая судьба. Он избранник богов. - В моих руках копия ключа Цифровой крепости, - послышался голос с американским акцентом.
Он слышал приятный голос сеньора Ролдана из агентства сопровождения Белена. У нас только две рыжеволосые… Две рыжеволосые, Иммакулада и Росио… Росио… Росио… Беккер остановился как вкопанный. А еще считаюсь лингвистом. Он не мог понять, как до него не дошло. Росио - одно из самых популярных женских имен в Испании.
Такое впечатление, что он его буквально всучил - канадцу показалось, будто бы он просил, чтобы кольцо взяли. Похоже, этот канадец рассмотрел его довольно внимательно. - Стратмор остановился и повернулся к Сьюзан.
Могу задать тебе точно такой же вопрос. Однако она отлично знала, чем занимался Хейл. Он был законченным компьютерным маньяком.
Как всегда, одна кабинка и один писсуар. Пользуются ли писсуаром в дамском туалете -неважно, главное, что сэкономили на лишней кабинке. Беккер с отвращением оглядел комнату. Грязь, в раковине мутная коричневатая вода. Повсюду разбросаны грязные бумажные полотенца, лужи воды на полу.
