Just a little question of curiousity here. I went to make a mug of
coffee this morning and thought about fixing the lid to the hopper of
my coffee grinder. It's a really cool little machine. A perfect
miniature of the large Hobart coffee grinders from the 1920s and '30s.
Anyway it has this clear plastic hopper. The hopper has a round, domed
lid which is like a tall, narrow "C" shape in cross section. The lid is
cracked and has a chunk missing out of it, so I've taped it back
together for now. I was just wondering how hard it would be to cast a
new lid out of resin? I remember reading somewhere online about a guy
who cast replacement telephone cases in funky-coloured resin.
Anyone know how hard it is to cast parts out of resin, and how
expensive it is?
