Default RE: Plug/Parting board

I saw Kevin Matney use parafin wax for his latest mold build thread. After using a CNC to cut the plugs, it looks like he uses the melted parafin wax to fill the gap between the parting plate and the part to finish the parting seam. Kevin Matney's thread is in the Q500 section on RCU, and the title of the thread is "This the plugs for my new Q/500". I think one can adapt the wax method to fill any parting line gaps, and of course, the wax is easy to shape and will not stick to the resin or part.

I was always wondering how the molds were make with that big trench around the parts! Thanks Kevin!!
