Waxes—Gating Up

Once the waxes are poured and cleaned the foundry will gate them up. Gating is adding wax channels to the wax pieces so that gases can escape.  A pour cup is also added to the wax.

Pouring cups are added to each piece as well as gates. 

Today I went to the foundry to check on more waxes and saw that a good deal of the praying man has been gated up.
