Finally have some time to write in the build log.
Fernando (SpaceCaptain) from the Yahoo group was king to send me small samples of different resins (4 ) before the holidays. I had tested mixing them and Dymax 9663 with Castin’ Craft Transparent Amber and here are the results:
The problem I discovered is that not one of the resins was able to cure to a layer less than 0.5mm even at 0.5 seconds cure time. Either my projector is too powerful or the dye is not opaque enough. Also the Dymax did not like a high dye content – it could not cure to a solid like – only to uncured silicone consistency.
The mini VATs I cleaned by polymerizing the resin left inside with a full blast of all white and Isopropyl alcohol. No ill effects.
I did find one good thing – The 2505 burns out with only sooth left:
Before and after ( the wire is a AWG24 )
I have thought of using the used or fresh yellow (brighter one ) toner from a Xerox machine:
It did not work because it was filled with some Ferric particles and the pigment did not get distributed evenly ( they are Synthetic Wax ).
And finally some more random pics:
Hope it is of some use to you.
