    I figure it's already on here someplace but is there a trick to removing the core wire from a no roll mold? I poured about a dozen today and each time the core wire got harder to remove from the mold. thanks

    Keep that Core wire Oiled Up every 3 to 4 pours it pulls lot BETTER. ANY KIND OF OIL WILL WORK.i JUST USE PLANE OLD MOTOR OIL 10/30. PUT SOME ON A OLD RAG AND WIPE THE CORE WIRE,Work Great. Hope this helps. J.D.:wink:

    I've had pretty good luck getting core wires and weights out of molds by sooting them every once in a while with a high flame from an oil lamp.

    Bob Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. I spray the core wire often with Pam cooking spray. Works great with little mess or bad smell.:0a23::0a25::0a25:

    One thing that helps is not bending the wire when its pulled out. Even after straightening it has little bumps that make removing it harder.
