Dipping tapers

<< < (7/7)

divemaster1963:
I have started dipping tapers. I got a used coffee brew pot from a second hand resturant supplier for 10 bucks. I put a restat on the heating element to keep from burning the wax. I can heat it up slowly then keep it set to temp. then I can pour molds and dip thru the top using the same pot. when done I just let it harden or use the spikit to fill forms of bricks. works great.

 I made my own On the same idea. And it works fine. The most inportant thing is to get the right wicking. For it. Keep your eye open for one or two of the old stainless fire extinuisher. Cut the top off and you have a great tank for dipping. Looking forward to Queens a high of 25 deg
