Pillar wicking revisited

Recommended Posts

Some time ago, a discussion was held with regard to a method for sealing the wick when pouring pillars. It involves rubber pads being pulled tight around the wick, thus sealing it. A photo was shown of the bottom of the mold, but not the top. I've attached a photo of my method for both ends, which should clarify the method.

Also if anyone is interested, and will contact me, I can provide a kit which is shown in one of the attached photos.

Actually, it isn't already on the market. The jiffy wicker is not sturdy enough to pull the wick tight enough to squeeze the rubber hard enough to seal the wick. I had one, and bent it the first time I tried it. The Jiffy wicker is used with a sealing compound around the base of the wick, not a rubber seal.

I haven't had a leak since I started using this system.
