Spotted the bubble Chris - I am sure you could blob a bit of wax in there and with your skills smooth it off again.

yeap.. i can.. and likely will..


still bites my ass tho!!! if i had seen it before i hooked it off the mill i could have rolled mach back to that point, blobbed wax into hole and simply recut that section.. once its off tho there is just no way to realign X..

but doesn't happen often.. got some waxes back from casting today and here some shots of finished work.

Dang dialup...
I couldn't survive without tutorials and would really like to see these.
So....I'll just have to wait till they get our phone lines off of the farmers fences and up on poles where they will work better.
