Mold Making Equipment
The mold making equipment category is really the meat of our studio accessories. In this section you will find those important items to create professional bubble-free molds and casting. These in include vacuum chamber, vacuum pumps as well as pressure pots, also known as pressure chambers. For those artists that do not know the difference between a vacuum chamber and pressure pot, strongly suggest you read mold about the differences by clicking on the link as each has a different application. You don’t want to make a purchase unless you know the differences. If you are on a more limited budget, and you wish to minimize the effects of air-bubbles in you work, we suggest the use of a vibrating table. Though vibration doesn’t completely remove all air bubbles, it can significantly reduce them, saving you about half or more over the price of a vacuum chamber or pressure pot. You will also find gram scales, turn tables and other time saving pieces of equipment. However, we can’t recommend enough the plaster trap that can be fixed to the drain under your studio or workshop sink to collect materials such as plaster and prevent a costly plumbing stoppage. It is low priced (less than a plumber’s service call) and easy to install.

The handiest two tools are the mold makers’ knife and the mold makers’ key knife for which no mold making studio should be without.
