I have a good 3 phase power supply. I have a project in mind that requires a part with 5 living hinges :) So that is my motovation to build a tool myself to produce this specific part I have in mind.
My biggest stumbling block is I do not have a mill to make the mold, I think at a minimum I would need an old bridgeport interact converted to mach

i was on the forum you mentioned looking for advice and i couldnt have put it better,an unforgiving place for anyone trying to get into injection moulding,you be discouraged from pursueing the idea and advised to pay someone else to make the parts for you
why im here ive got an unopened 25kg bag of delrin p 500 if anyones interested cost £130 hardie polymers id take £50.
inventor tells me for the size of the parts i needed to mold, my little injector would not be capable of filling the mold with this stuff ,
so i took its word for it.

Robin, I did wonder why we'd never heard anything more about your machine!
Might be worth posting up over on the HSM forum, as I've seen some quite knowledgable replies to mould queries, without none of the bullshit that the plastics.com forum seems to be full off.
My only purchase so far is a copy of Arburg's practical guide to injection moulding, which I picked up cheap of ebay, so I'm keen to hear about other people's ventures into the injection moulding world.
Should we set up a new forum for small scale manufacturing/mold making? I have a hosting account and can set up a simple forum, but I don't want to do the moderating and new user sign ups by myself. Anyone wanna do this together?
I'm on it as we speak, will post a link back soon as i'm done.

Nice idea. Today's technology helps you alot. You may find best other forums after search and get better solutions. Well done!
I agree with m_c, it is a very big issue that injection moulding machine needs to run good three phase power supply. Otherwise it canít be work properly.
Hello to all,
I think Nowadays, with great technology injection mould making process is very popular because it takes less time than other procedure..Injection moulding Design make with CAD technology which enables to manufacture the product with high standard..
Work with different new technology machines...
