        I think that off white translucent wax was sticky wax. You use that to bond the wax to the PLA.

                                        I'm curious to know why you didn't use the lathe to cut the threads into the brass? I have noticed that they end up coming out cleaner than being done with a Die.

                                                This video was a joke right? where the final cleaned up working vice? You called this a success.

                                                  Pretty wobbly threads or just camera artifacting? Also, should be ACME threads for a vise. Nonetheless turned out pretty cute.

                                                    Why didn’t they print the sprues.

                                                      Yes that’s correct but I was thinking printing them separately and use a soldering iron to glue them on. Slower possibly but could be printed at the same time as the vice.

                                                      Then they would need a lot of support structure while printing. The printw cant print in mid air

                                                              Why didn't they just .ake a silicone mold of the plastic parts and then cast wax into the molds so they wouldnt have to worry about the wax not sticking to the pla???
