Tools For a Lost Wax Shop
Working with wax is an inexpensive and fun way to make jewelry, but turning the wax into metal requires a lot of tools and and can be expensive. Making a shop personal comes as you work with, and choose, different tools and waxes. Here are some tools and supplies I like and use.
A motor lathe is needed for polishing when you really start making things. A dremel can work if you are only making a few projects now and then. The Lathe can be any motor with a spindle. I have one made from an old belt sander and one from an old treadmill. Then you can buy the spindle ends to attach the buffs.
