    I'm not so sure I get what your saying R5R... I can tell you this from yesterdays first run though. At around 3/4's pot full I started noticing that dumping just 4 or 5 sprue cuts back into the melt, it would drop the temperature around 24~26*F....

    Initially I was concerned thinking the white plastic trays might scrape off some paint when the boolits fell down into each hole but that is not the case. That was my first impression too, I'm glad you mentioned this...I may just have to give...

    Start out with a small batch and write everything down. When you get it all figured out, then make a big batch. Depending on what you are going to use this in, the lanolin may not be needed.. It will give the Paraffin a little stickiness, help the...

    Start out with 50% each and a Tablespoon of Lanolin and go from there..You will be close.. Too hard add a bit more Vaseline, bit too soft add more candle wax. Oh one more thing; Let it cool completely before you judge the hardness
