Silicone mold parts coming in.

March 22, 2014 in 8 Channel PDU by Joshua Oster-Morris

The mold master I ordered arrived yesterday along with enough resin for a dozen more Motobrains. The silicone will arrive early next week and I will create the mold and try it out. I am not satisfied with the quality of the master. I used a new vendor and their quality isn’t as nice as I had hoped (good but not worth memorializing for all time). It was about half the normal cost so you get what you pay for. This is not a big deal because the part I have is adequate to learning silicone mold making and casting. Once I’ve got a process I like, I’ll order another master taking into account anything else I learn and we will be off to the races.

Expect some test castings next week. Perhaps even a real casting in the new mold if everything goes well.
