3 inch Pillar melt pool

Recommended Posts

The general rule of thumb is your melt pool should widen about one inch per hour of burn time - typically after test burning a three inch pillar for three hours, I know if I need to wick up or wick down. Sometimes, though, it will catch up during the second burn, even if you think your wick is too small, so you might want to wait it out a bit more.
