Injection molding


--Well I finally finished the die I've been working on sporadically.
Trouble was I didn't have my injection molding machine dialled in yet but I
reeeally wanted to see if the die produced a decent part. I could have used
casting resin but that stuff's pretty brittle. In a moment of inspiration I
thot why not use hot glue? I did and it works! Crummy photos here:

OK. Good save.
YOU might be interested in this little jobber, although you don't et snow in NorCal. Cool, isn't it? My buddy in D.C. just sent this:
ROBOPLOW Ah, too late for the blizzards...

We don't get much snow up here, and I still want one.

That would be way way cool when hooked (brain) to a hay bailer and field plow as well.

--See bottom 3 photos. Succeeded yesterday for first time making parts out of plastic rather than hot glue. Have a problem with flash but I think I can fix that today. The awful coloring is due to switch from Nylatron to Nylon 6; not sure how many parts I'll have to run B4 they come out lookin' good.
