Melt pool Deepth

Recommended Posts

I never measure it. The melt pool being too deep always goes along with other problems, like the container being too hot and the flame being too tall and sooting. For me, getting a precise measurement doesn't really contribute anything.

Of course it's one of the things I might note by eyeballing it. The way I would look at the melt pool is at the edge of the container, so I guess that's how I'd measure it. If the melt pool didn't come all the way to the edge then I wouldn't even think about the depth.

I'm surprised if you're not having some difficulty with the skewer technique. The softer container waxes don't really offer much resistance at the bottom of the melt pool when you poke them. Soy in particular has a deep layer of soft slush beneath the melted part.
