RFQ: Machine Work for Blank Casting Mold
Hello, I'm seeking some quotes for a shop to machine a blank Do-It Mold for me. I can't seem to find a local shop that would be interested in a small job like this so I'm trying here.
Here's a link to the mold (I'd use the small one):
Do-It Blank Molds
I've started making blackjacks (spring batons) for fun/hobby and have been using improvised molds in the past (schedule 40 PVC). Finding original molds are next to impossible. Most were bought by collectors. So I'm looking to have a one machined from the blank mold.
I'm looking for the molded lead to be 3" long and domed on the end. The widest part is .875" at the end and tapers to .625" where the mold meets the spring. The final lead product will weigh around 8 oz. Each side of the mold will mirror the other so all dimensions would have halved. This is just some lead on a spring so none of the dimensions are very critical.
If anyone is interested, I'll PM a drawing. I've tried to keep the drawing simple enough to do on a manual mill.
PM sent..... Thank You!--------------John
