Silicone mold poured

March 25, 2014 in 8 Channel PDU by Joshua Oster-Morris

I poured the silicone mold this morning. The process is quite fast. We shall see tomorrow how it looks. I am cautiously optimistic. My vacuum pump had a little performance anxiety today. While my tests showed it could achieve 30 inches of mercury of vacuum, it only got to 25 inches today, so that may be an issue. It looks fine though, not too many bubbles. This is just a test run anyway because the mold master is not perfect. I should learn plenty from this and frankly this only needs to be adequate. Perfection is something that my manufacturer needs to deal with. I am making samples and they can just be good.
