Proper Porcerax II Mold Venting

Are your Porcerax II inserts venting as well as they could be? Fact # 1: Most Porcerax inserts are not cleaned before they are put into production, thus leaving them full of cutting fluids and graphite partials, rendering the venting insufficient. Fact # 2: Most inserts need to be returned to Molder's World, Inc. for their periodic cleaning (around 30,000 shots for PP & ABS and 20,000 shots for...
