I subscribed to this group for a while about six months ago.
I didn't in fact do the castings I needed my self, I had a small
foundry do them.
I made an mdf pattern and have had about 20 of these items done so far..
I am just altering the pattern prior to haveing another ten cast.
Becuse i made the pattern without any undercut's I have to machine rather
a lot off the casting, so I am removing what I can from the pattern,
quicker to remove it onces than ten times?
I wondered what people paint patterns with, I was talking to someone at a
landrover show and he said they use a 2pack floor paint on their patterns,
brushed on it flows out like glass and is quite hard.. I didn't ask what
paint or where I get it though..
I did look in 'Bodge it and Quick' they have a few types of paint that
sound promising, but i cant spend a tenner a can on a few types of paint in
hope it is ok...
