free boxes..

mathew....

if you use priority mail the boxes are free...

you can go to the post office and get the boxes, or if you need a lot of them you can go to their web site and have them delivered to your doorstep for free....

if you do the postage online then deliv confirmation was free thru paypal last time i checked....

<<<Didn't mean to insult your method--it's definitely the best thing anyone has thought of thus far, but I think it's something you have to get the feel for to make sure it works every time.>>>

That's OK. But every other method will need 'the feel' too, because of the nature of wax and glass. Another professional method, like the Boss guys probably used (they stopped I think, which makes you wonder..) most likely use equipment that most of us can't afford.
But how many would you make if it has to work every time. I only need (have) one. There is a patent on these things, you know...

Make more of them and sell them Oscar. Get a weight of some people's chest here... Since the results only come at the end of a long trial and error period, everyone will understand the price, especially since most results are "just about right" but not quite there...

But I'd have to calculate the price of my lawyers too. I'll get Boss screens on my back! Get them off!

Here's the latest. I'm going to the post office this afternoon to get an idea of how much this will cost to ship. Here's a picture of the size of a half pound block (actually this is about 9oz, others will be slightly smaller):

It's really pretty big. One problem is that it takes FOREVER to cut. It's REALLY hard. I'm going to have to figure out a better way to cut it.

Mathew,
Take a thin wire and have it connected to a car battery charger (or any other 12-24v power supply providing over 3A). The wire gets warm (hot?) and all you have to do is slide the "cheese" and get the samples done clean and in no time flat. Add a A4 paper after the cutting, (so it does not bond back)

Matthew,

I have been looking every where for some of this. Would you be able to take a strait money order? I would love to get some ASAP but I don't have a paypal acoount (and will not get one) so I would have to send money. Could you PM me please if this is possible?

Thanks.

Thinking about it, email would be better. BennisHahn@yahoo.com

Matthew,
Did you manage to get to the post office to find out shipping costs? So you want $9 for the wax plus postage to the UK around 7$?

I can paypal you instantly. Just let me know. Im very egar to get my hands on this.

Thanks again,
Wayne.

As it turns out, the post office was closed when I got there. Apparently they close early on Saturday.


Anyhow, shipping to the UK looks like about 7 dollars, probably a bit more, but I'll charge less than 9 dollars for the wax. It's worth about a dollar or two, although cutting and wrapping it is a huge pain. Sorry this is going so slowly, I've just been kind of busy.

<<less than 9 dollars for the wax. It's worth about a dollar or two, although cutting and wrapping it is a huge pain.>>

I don't want to sound offensive, because I'm sure the intentions are good, but getting $1,5 worth of wax for +/- $15 is absurd. I'm a sculptor and cut wax and clay all the time, so please don't say it's hard to cut (or read Dan's post). If your local art suppliers or chemical store doesn't have it, ask them to order it.
When I posted on this board that I couldn't find it, two people volunteered to send it only for the shipping costs. That's the spirit on these boards. Later on I found microwax the corner of my own street, so it wasn't necessary.

There's a place in L.A. that sells it in 1/4 lb bags, for $1.79.
