Double Gloucester---to dry out of press?
« on: September 13, 2014, 03:39:54 PM »
Have just taken a Double Gloucester out of the press and it was so dry I'm wondering if something went wrong. My other makes of D.G. and Cotswold always came out very damp and leaked a little and usually took three to five days till dry enough to wax. This was bone dry after final press of 56 lbs. for 24 hours, 6 inch S.S. mold. Do you think it's OK to wax that soon or should I wait a couple days?
  Sorry about photos---darn flash won't stay off----listens about as well as my dog.
