The Press needs leveling. At the rear end it is possible to put a narrow tape of 2 to 4 mm in thickness in order to obtain a slight incline forward.

The water supply is going through the orifice of the bottom plate at the right end of the Press. The top plate is supplied through the short hose from the triple adaptor. The water outlets are at the left end where the two long hoses are fitted.

There are two ways to perform system cooling:

1.To supply the Press with water directly from the tap, which runs very slowly.
The better option.

2.To use a pump for indoor fountain with water column of 120 cm and 20 to 60 Litters of water circulate in the closed system.

Pour 1 cm of water into the cistern and place it at the front end of the Press through which the excess wax would come out.

The recommended working temperature of the wax is 90° C.

To melt the wax, use a specialized vessel or an old fryer with thermoregulator which switches on and off below the specified temperature of 90° C.

When the Press is open, spray it with a separator by using a sprayer. Pour the melted wax over the bottom plate up to 2/3 from the rear end and then immediately close it.

Before the wax completely melts and is still soft and flexible, open the Press by the foot at the front right edge of the bottom plate. Repeat the procedure in this order many times.

In case you do not have a specialized separator, you could use a solution of soapy water with small quantity of soap by adding ethyl alcohol until the bubbles disappear into the water.

Do not use any cutting tools during the operation.

At the end of the operation drain the water and put a sheet of paper between the plates.

Method of storage - at home.
