Thanks Jeff!.. Here's a proto type cast in silver I just wanted to experiment a little..so I carved out the underside but decided I didn't like it that way so I re did the wax model ...I first designed the hollow ring then put a cap on the top as one file . rotary milled it then in the file removed the cap for the second file ....then milled as a flat milling to the hollowed out depth. then did the top as a two-sidded flip mill.. the wax is not completed yet just showing the process...if you've ever torn open a real class ring you will notice most of them are hollow on the inside like so...
Question: how do you guys go about polishing all the reccessed areas in the castingwhere thenormal poliching wheels and points won't 'get it'?
