Cake Pan Mold for Resin Casting

– Posted in: Videos

While I was at the SWAT woodturning symposium this year, I was asked whether or not a springform style cake pan mold would work for resin casting a turning blank in. I wasn’t sure so I decided to give it a shot, and I was surprised by the result!

In addition to the metal cake pan, I also ran across a silicone springform style mold, and I tried that out too. I love experiments!!

I picked the molds up on Amazon, I’ve included my affiliate links to the molds I used as well as a couple others I found that might be worth investigating (click picture below.) Make sure you watch the video before diving into a metal one though.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how that aluminum shavings blank turns out! Question is what to make with it… Hmmmm?

    Hi. My workbench has an aluminum frame surround, and I spilled Alumilite on it withpot noticing. One it cured, the only way to get it off was with a torch – couldn’t even scrape it off cold, so alumilite definitely sticks to aluminum! :)_

      That’s a bummer! Yeah it tends to stick to most things unless they are glossy smooth. Especially if it seeps into cracks, seems to hold on for dear life!!
