GENERAL - Forged, Extruded, Cast and Lost Wax Cast

Question: What is the difference between forged, extruded, cast and lost wax cast brass?
Answer: These are all different methods of forming brass into a particular shape. Forged and extruded are made from a single piece of metal and are the strongest. Cast brass is made by pouring molten metal into a mold and is usually used for decorative pieces. Lost wax cast is used for very detailed decorative pieces and is made using wax molds.
