Home brew plastic injection molding - Model Engineers Workshop Magazine


Issue 92 August/September (I think) of UK based Model Engineers Workshop magazine ran an article on a basic DIY plastic injection molding system.

I wonder if someone who has this article would be kind enough to scan & email it to me? None of my local news agents have this magazine and the Australian distributor G&G refers all customers wanting magazine back orders to Nexus in the UK - major pain without a credit card etc.

I'd also be most interested in links to online resources describing similar home built systems. I'm looking for this information mainly out of interest, not as a serious production system.

While the company, and the author of the above titles, seem well regarded in their circles, this post shouldn't be construed as a recommendation.
