Default Re: Hood Ornament


The production patterns are almost complete. Got them all assembled tonight and soaked in penetrating epoxy to make them durable enough to get the 50 parts off. I made a matched plate set for the main part including indexing pins. Fred will add any gates, sprues, and venting he needs.

They just need a final light sanding and maybe a coat of paint and they are good to go. Should deliver them to the foundry on Monday or Tuesday next week and have parts back the following week!

Getting closer. Thanks for your patience.

and NO they are not done yet!
