Steve, Thanks! Who knows , Indian is setting up dealerships right now. A few years back they tried to re-open but had problems, but now two guys who own Chris Craft Boats bought Indian and now they are on the way!
Charlie, I agree, I got an email today about the same thing. Note: I was asked to pull the link down, they want to show it and they have yet to have that opportunity. The Grand Openings of the new dealerships should be quite an event!
3/4" MDF laminated and pressed during cure time. MDF can take more heat than anything else during thermoforming, not exactly as much during machining, the resin and dust can be pretty flammable at times. If a tool fouls up while covered with dust and particles and heat builds up it will ignite.

I hope the general public will support them well. Michael
I also used MDF for my first mold, laminated with Epoxy. It's served me well. Although after just short of 1000 formings it's starting to get tired and I'm likely to remake it soon in Ally with a few refinements.
Not to everyones taste I know but here it is in action.
The truck was something else. We used to have a guy who thought he had to take jobs no matter how bad the loss, so it was all for the glory in the end. I remember a CAD file coming in that was scaled different, but not enough to be obvious to joe blow. :-/ After the cab was all glued together I had to set it up on each of its' sides to cut off the little vertical "wings" at the back edge so we could glue new ones on. The thing you asked about is for testing intake flow for jet engines in models. It has pressure tubes and thermocouples in the vanes, and that's about all I should say it does. It's a cool place to work as long as a modelmaker can understand we do it for profit. I know some pretty good modelers who made rotten employees. :-( Oh well, I guess it's that way in all walks of life. I'm glad I like it enough I can stay with it.
That's what I can't do Bob but the wall on the part is .065 and that took some figuring out, as you well know. I probably have the largest single supply of silver goop on the west coast.
I'm going to keep my comments to myself. GRRRRRRRRRR. Your efforts as DoctorBottlleBoob do impact folks on occaision. I told you guys I was pleased to have you working on this stuff and I am and always have been. I hae indeed been blessed, much to our mutual surprise.
This one has been a real pistol and getting it right has taken a villiage. Just wait until you see the Body. It's a real pip.
Hey, the launch from the Liberty last month was the first of what we did and it came off clean.
