He talks about making his stems on an Oom-Paul podcast. I believe he does pour almost all of his lucite (or similar) stems. I don't believe he mentioned vulcanite. I'm doubtful you can pour vulcanite, but who knows, it is very rarely mentioned/discussed.Zeno Marx":7sx5sdxq said:Does he self-pour lucite or vulcanite stems? Is there anyone else out there pouring their own stem stock? I find that an incredible area of creativity that doesn't get talked about much. I know some carvers have special stem stock made for them, but to making your own?
