Oven heats up to 800+ degrees Celsius

The wax is completely burnt away at 800 degrees Celsius.
Now you have a cavity in the mold in the shape the wax first was. Therefore we
call this the lost-wax-casting method.
Preheating the crucible with the metal (gold or silver) The crucible is the melting pot that we use to melt the
metals, like gold, silver or a mixture.
Melting the metal (gold or silver) We apply heat from a mixture of propane and oxygen gas
