19 Oct 2018 Lost wax casting kit for sale Tiranti lost wax casting kit.
I have used this kit to make a number of small bronze castings for my traction engine,
The kit comprises the following items:
small square furnace, and covering dome, made of ceramic fibre
Mould for wax patterns for crucibles
Steel stand for wax melt-out
Clamp for holding the propane burner up to the furnace
two sets of tongs, for lifting the dome and for turning the mould
a pair of thick leather gauntlets
a safety face shield
a quantity (2 kg) of ceramic investment powder
a couple of blocks of wax
instruction manual
To use the kit, you will need in addition, some liquid to make the investment slurry, I think this is sodium silicate, and a large propane torch. Plus some bronze, and pieces of carbon. The liquid can be obtained from commercial bronze foundries who will probably give you a couple of litres free.
