I did this at TechShop Menlo Park. http://www.techshop.com A large chunk of microcrystalline wax is not easily cut or broken. We had to get creative ...
And it gummed up the blade right away.
We figured we would use a car battery charger to introduce heat to the blade.
It worked for a second but didn't get too far. Maybe because the blade surface being too big to send an even charge.
Using conductive copper wire and two sticks of wood we created a cutter. It didn't work by itself but charging it helped.
Electricity provided heat for the wire which cut through the wax nicely and easily!
The smaller chunks of wax are much easier to work with. I am using them for lost wax casting. Enjoy!
