Stalagmite    Pouring Triple Tray Impressions (using the Pouring Jig)

Pouring "Arch" Triple Tray Impressions:

Remove the impression and attached Opposing_Base from the Index-Plate and pour die side of the impression. When pouring the impression, be careful not to dislodge the impression from the stone and Opposing_Base.

Reattach the Opposing_Base and Impression to the Pouring Jig Index-Plate.
 


Tease some stone around pins and surface of the RTP_Base. Tap lightly on the side of the base to settle the stone.

Add a little extra stone to the impression and base before rotating over into final position.

 



The RTP_Base is lowered into position by applying downward pressure on the yellow Swing- Arm while lightly tapping the RTP_Base on the side with a spatula or other instrument. This will settle the RTP_Base into position until the yellow Swing- Arm "stops" make contact with the green Swing-Arm Stand (see red arrow).


Caution: Do not push down on the Mounting-Plate. If you do, it will bend down and spring back up when pressure is released. This will take the stone out of compression and pull it away from the RTP_Base while increasing the possibility for other voids. Put downward pressure on the yellow Swing-Arm "only."
