How To Cast Antique Car Steering Wheel
You are now ready to begin pouring. Mix equal amounts
of Alumilite White A side and B side in a bucket.
Mix the material thoroughly until absolutely no swirls
or streaks are seen.
Tilt the mold to allow the resin to flow down the side of
the mold to decrease the chance of creating air bubbles when
pouring. Pour slowly to allow the resin to flow naturally
into the mold.
While pouring, tilt the mold to help the resin flow into
the different areas in the mold and to eliminate undercut areas
which will allow any air bubbles to flow back up to the pour
hole and escape.
An extra set of hands may be necessary depending on the
size of the mold. Continue to rotate the mold back and
forth until the mold is full of resin.
Once the mold is full, place the pour hole cut out back into
its position which will squish out the excess resin and fill
the detail back into that section of the steering wheel.
Press the cut out section firmly back into place until the
U channel made by the Key Knife snaps into place.
Once the resin has cured, remove the bolts and boards
supporting the mold and begin to separate the two halves.
Continue to work around the outside edge to separate
the two halves.
The mold will separate and you will find your cast
steering wheel with minimal flash and a small seam line around
the pour hole section on the back of the part that can easily
be cleaned up.
Remove the steering wheel from the mold and with your fingers
or a dull knife remove any excess flash.
