Re: Release agent question

Wish I could take credit for it, but I am a student in this group, so I do help a bit. This is part of the castings for a hit & miss engine.

Re: Release agent question

We use CRC silicone spray in our core box to release sodium silicate and sand core hardened with CO2. Our core box and patterns are 3D printed with 175 filament.
