Euro Tool, Inc. has developed five wax tool kits and a cordless wax pen for the overall improvement of wax working projects.
|Each of the tapered tools in this kit has a ridged file surface that cuts on the push stroke. The longest is 20 millimeters in length and the shortest is 11 mm. (Kit # FIL-740.00)|
|Shown here is the removal of raised imperfections on the inside flat surface of this injected wax pattern. The smaller dimensions enable effective wax removal in tight areas without damage to other parts of the wax model. Injection or carving wax is easily removed from the cutting surface of these tools because of its parallel, ridged tooling design.|
|These small rigid tapered wire spiral files appear serrated in profile. The efficient spiral design cuts on the pull stroke. They are 18 mm in length and are mounted in wooden handles. Two tools, fine and very fine sizes come in the kit. (Kit # CVR-505.15)|
|Detailing in-between the gallery wires of this injected wax heart pendant is simple with these tools. The unique design of these versatile tools allows them to file, clean and saw (without threading) in very small areas. The fine pointed ends of the spiral serrated wire files are 0.60 millimeters (very fine) and 1.00 millimeters (fine).|
|This multi-purpose kit contains six stainless steel precision carving and shaping tools. (Kit # CVR-550.12)|
|Each tool is finely sharpened and expertly fashioned so that the weight is behind the cutting edgeâ"less pressure is needed and there is ease of control. This one is ideal for creating or cleaning a thin recessed area.|
|These four-miniature rasp files are ideal for carving waxes. Each tool has a cutting surface that's 28 millimeters in length. (Kit # Fil-755.00)|
|The half rounded shape quickly removes wax in the central portion of an oval gypsy ring. The long handles give good leverage for the small file surfaces and they are great for removing wax and shaping in tight or awkward areas.|
|This kit contains four double-ended shaped precision scraping tools. Each shape is sharpened and finely fashioned on one side and blunt on the topside. (Kit # CVR-500.00)|
|The sharpened side of the square shaped tool is ideal for the removal of a parting line that is on a flat shank. The blunt side will be good for burnishing the surface. It's 7.5 millimeters square. (The teardrop shape is perfect for finishing rounded shanks or other domed areas.)|
|The Max Wax pen is a battery operated cordless unit that fits nicely in your hand is easy to manipulate. By depressing the tab (A), you achieve instant heat to the tip.|
|This wax ring, with crisp angular edges has been hollowed and is ready to be capped. Capping the model allows for consistent, exacting wall thickness as well as smooth finishing inside the most complex pattern.|
|The wax pen has a tip that's 0.30 millimeters in diameter, is rigid, holds it's shape and heats up instantly to temperatures suitable for working with carving wax. It's ready to go when you areâ"a time saver.|
