      Oh.
      The marginal ridges are higher here compared to the working model.
      Can take crown and push it firm in working model and dies spread and contacts look better.
      My guess is two hits with my rubber disk in the middle of the distal contact and the lingual would drop down and contacts would look much nicer.

      I use this for those last final touches. Pretty happy with it.

      We had also tried the monotrac system....saved a lot of time in the plaster room, but then we started getting the complaints about the contacts.
      We have always checked our contacts on a separate solid model, so we assumed that it was the usual...poor temps.
      But the complaints kept increasing and finally the owner had had enough. We went back to the pindex models and there went 90 % of our complaints!

      So if you use a solid cast to check interproximal contacts at the end, dose it really make any difference if the model work is done on Monotrac or conventional pidex system? Just a question :)

      I wouldn't think so. The monotrac was so simple and clean, but in the end, that was the only variable. I talked with the inventor/owner of monotrac several times and we followed the directions religiously, but I guess there was still movement somewhere. (Curiously, the contacts would be great on the working model, but slightly open on the solid! We would add a little to the contact to close it up and it would be too tight on the working!)
