These questions about investment casting of Silicone Rubber bring
up a couple of questions.

Can parts built on a Sanders machine be RTV molded? Do the parts
hold up to the heat produced while the silicone is setting up? Does
the Sanders' wax inhibit the hardening of the silicone? Is the
wax compatible with release agents used in RTV molding?
