Machinable Clear Casting Resin Answered


Does anyone know of a clear casting resin that when cured is also machinable?  I have an idea for a project that involves encasing objects in resin and then using power tools, milling machines, lathes, etc. to partially expose the object by cutting though it and the casting.  Any thoughts on what resin to use and where it can be purchased?



Look for a hard resin, like an epoxy.

All resins are 'machinable'. Shouldn't be a problem grind off bits. Just a matter of sanding it all down nice and flat and repolishing it.
