oh , and longer than 4 hours if doing more than Two 2.5 flask with 2 rings in ea. , with ea. rings to weigh about 4 grams ea. in 14k (so that means a total of 8 grams of 14k gold , for a total of 16 grams for 2 flask )

or more time if doing large and heavy pises per flask , ( if ring will weigh 10 grams ea. ) needs more time in oven , when there is more resin, more resin needs more time to be dissolved or disintegrated .

of course you will have to experiment to see how much to push it in your particular case but I think this should work for most people.

keep in mind slower ramp doesn't mean better results , from about 600 to 1300 the ash is disintegrating , the goal is to minimize that part of the burnout ,to have less risk or chances of ash forming, so you want that time to be shortened , that's why a fast burnout is ideal with this resin , then after that you want the investment to cure proper and harden to prepare for the melted gold , that's why you want more time in the oven if there is more resin to disintegrate,more than the parameters I set forth in my previous post .

if this helps anyone , God Bless

if not , keep doing what you're doing , you can't argue with good results .
