    Hmmm. Have you considered simply pouring Polymorph in to a silicon rubber mould?

    Suppose it rather depends on the operating temperature.

    Could use potting compound if you vacuum degassed it.

    I've got 5 of them and I've never used them...so if you want one they're going cheap :P

    The Americans make moulds from what they call 7075 T6 alloy

    But Alumec 89 is available in the UK in cut plate and is wear resistant to a greater depth.

    I have a book telling how to make a really crummy lever operated press you could knock up in a couple of days. I can find it if you're interested.
    Some work gone into that robin,did you ever finish it? or did you move it on?ive been slowly gathering the parts to knock one up.

    Finish what? The home brew? Just gathering dust. You could have that really cheap but you'd have to collect it and I'd want to keep the pump

    13,300 views for this old thread of mine - whacky (though the stats spike the interest of the lazy entrepreneur in me & illustrate there's a phenomenal amount of interest in desktop injection moulding machines)
