    I, for one, was certainly not arguing with 44MAG#1 about anything he posted. Since he asked no question nor made a statement I just asked for a little more information to fully understand the information/data he posted. I do disagree with him...

    Brass brush maybe if done By hand using a brush with a wooden handle, (thanks JonB for pointing out my omission) try the hardwood first. Brass (any ) brush in a power tool had a steel shaft that can harm your mold.

    New molds occasionally have burs on the edge of the cavities. Get a piece of hardwood or a #2 pencil and rub the edges of all the cavities and see it that helps. IF you do decide you need to polish them, use the hardest alloy you have to cast the...

    jwhite, IF your oven is a convection oven, you will need to determine the voltage of the fans and power them directly and not through the PID otherwise the constant off-on for temperature control will quickly burn out the fan.
