>hey Michael.... in a tank that size, apprx. how many total pounds of wax/rosin do you put in there? just trying to figure the up front costs to building a set up like that one day.
I don't know for sure. But 100 pounds of beeswax and 50 pounds of rosin is a good start.
>You dip for 10-12 min? Just curious why so long.
At 230 F to 250 F You're frying them really. You get the box hot enough that as it cools it sucks the wax into the wood. In about 10-12 minutes it gets to the point that it will boil over if I leave it longer.
> I have been dipping in beeswax and linseed for about 5 min @ 250.
