More work to do

Wel, that didn't work. I'm trying to combine a couple of molds into one, to simplify the casting and assembly, and it is eating my lunch! If all goes well, I should have a real working prototype by Halloween, assuming my other projects don't get in my way. Pics coming soon!

Not so fast!

Well, the silicone molds were poured for the Rebel Commando detonator charge, but the hollow cylinder mold failed. Back to the drawing board. I thought I could vac form it, but that did not work. Too much webbing. Then, I thought I could make a rubber mold, but I tried to over simplify it, and that failed. Now, I have to make a 2-3 part mold. Getting closer, maybe this weekend, I can have a prototype done.
