    could someone take a pic of exactly how you hold the mold when you open it with a gloved hand? do you mean you hit the sprueplate with your palm, or grasp the mold block and push the plate with your thumb? I must sound dumb, but I cant really figure out exactly how you do it, using your palm to hit it doesn't sound fun at all

    I don't 'grasp' the blocks...I just have my thumb on the sprue plate extension and my index finger on the other side of the blocks and slide the plate open by moving my thumb toward my finger.

    On my NOE mold I stole the handle from a Lee 6-gang sprue plate. Works fine

    NOE Sprue-opening-jig major upgrade all wood easy to make, can't mar the mold
    I cut a groove in the base to
    adjust the base length for your mold size.
    next modification will be a piece of slotted angle iron attached to the bottom of the wood base so I can easily adjust depth according to mold size

    all these are great ideas.

    Going to have to fab some and see what works best for me
