      For those of you who wish to learn how to cast your own parts or make molds or buy the materials to do both; these are great how to's. I have used their products to both make molds and cast resin Smooth-On How to Link parts.

      Here is a picture of resin Smooth-On How to Link parts from my Mercedes engine as an example:

      These parts were made from silicone molds, and then cast using a pressure pot to get the detail required. I used the Smooth Cast 320 resin Smooth-On How to Link . By the way this was my first attempt at mold making and resin Smooth-On How to Link casting Smooth-On How to Link .

      Here is the resin Smooth-On How to Link engine assembled and painted by Martin Wolf of the Netherlands, he did a great job.

    0) 0) 0) Good gravy, that's the kind of resin Smooth-On How to Link casting Smooth-On How to Link we need. That's high quality stuff. Using the pressure pot really does help to get the detail sharp and goes a long way towards reducing the resin Smooth-On How to Link porosity. This is the way we used to do it in the dental labs. You can get two kinds of pressure pots depending on the size of your molds. The small ones work by squeezing the pot in a vise like frame. The bigger ones work off air pressure from a compressor. Either way, it makes a huge difference in the quality of cast parts. It's all about atention to detail.
    Sometimes a handful of patience is worth more than a truck load of brains. Have the courage to trust your own beliefs. Don't be swayed by those with louder voices. W.S. Maugham :)

    Here is a selection of pots based on your needs for size and wallet. Also check e-bay for a used painting pot which is basically the same.

    Casting Smooth-On How to Link under pressure is the best way to make high quality resin Smooth-On How to Link castings. This is especially true with difficult recesses and complex molds.

    Simply cast your part in your mold and then insert your mold into the pressure pot. Secure the lid tightly, and then turn on your air supply to fill the pot to 30-40 PSI. (DO NOT EXCEED 50 PSI). Leave the pressure pot on until the casting Smooth-On How to Link has cured. Then remove the air source and release the air from the pot. Unfasten the lid and remove your mold from the pot. Demold your void free casting Smooth-On How to Link .

    [B]Note: [/B]You will want to make certain you pressure cast your silicone mold while curing Smooth-On How to Link or use your vacuum chamber to remove all air from the mold rubber to avoid having the mold collapse in areas of your mold that have air trapped under the surface. You will have the appearance of ?warts? on the surface of the finished result if you do not.
