New to casting, seeking advice

Post#1 » Fri Jan 12, 2018 7:18 pm

Hi everyone!

I'm looking to start making jewelry using the lost wax method. I have never done this specific process before, however I know about the process because I am pretty experienced in lost wax bronze casting.
To start this new journey, I would like to purchase a spin caster. Does anyone out there have recommendations as to a good brand I should look into?
Thank you!

If u want entry level equipment, just get broken arm casting machine.

I have one like this and been using over 30 yrs. U can let it in a large washing tub bolted to a table. Have to make sure diameter is large enough.

I have the Lucas Jewel casting machine (http://lucasdentalcompany.com/photos.html) and their prices and support have been outstanding.
