  • Resin Casting and removable rod

    I need help or suggestions. I am casting some dive planes and will need to have the final product with a shaft hole in it. The solution I have seen others do, is cast the piece with a brass rod in it. After the resin hardens, the rod is removed. So, what do I need to do to assure the rod will be released?
    (hopefully this makes sense, if not please ask me to clarify)
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
