Hey all!

I'm going for my first lost wax project. I've managed to create a suitable rubber mold and I've gotten to the wax shaping stage - just about ready to fill the investment. My problem is, I don't have a centrifuge or vacuum kiln.

Will this work with just a gold pour?

I'll be melting a mixture of 10 - 24k scrap gold to pour in

Should I attached more burrs? Did I choose bad positions for the existing ones?

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!
