Production smooth plates: Combs made of thin plates of wax which is most simply obtained by immersing or thin glass plates (or,for example,plywood) with a size of 400 × 265 × 3 mm in the molten wax (template edges are not to be beveled.) Good practice is to have a wooden board dipped into oversaturated salt solution beforehand (concentration is reached when salt stops dissolving). Then a template should be put into cold water (6-12°C) for 6-8 seconds. If you are using glass template, add some wash up liquid into the water: that will prevent wax sticking to template. After that shake the template or wipe remaining water with a sponge and put it into liquid wax. Use a container of appropriate size for this purpose; the most common size of wax container is: length 280-300mm; width 40-50mm; height 410-450mm. Material of wax container should be inert to wax: stainless steel, aluminum, white iron or galvanized white steel (worse).
