Using the Wax Pen to Create Wax Models

Remove the stone from the completed model and it’s ready to cast.

When using the wax pen, there will be a slight bit of smoke emanating from the heated wax, so respiratory protection suitable for a smoke vapor must be worn!

The V-shaped well that was cut into the base of the tip will serve as a reservoir to supply wax to the tip.

If you want it to heat quicker, turn the dial up to the maximum for 30 seconds before turning it back down.
