A thin carborundum disk is used to create a “plus” pattern in both sides of the framework to be soldered. This helps lock the GC resin in place after it hardens. Note the Kaitlyn loop in the top right picture. The middle left radiograph shows the separate pieces of the metal frame after being tried on the teeth. GC resin is then applied. The next radiograph shows the soldered, seated frame. The final picture shows the porcelain is later added (in the left side of this picture).
