    ACTIVE - 4 cavity Ingot molds

    This Group Buy is now closed


    After a long discussion thread, I've finally got a plan together to get die-cast aluminum molds made at a very reasonable cost. The quote below is where we arrived on: 1) mold cost 2) piece cost and 3) bulk shipping to me.

    Each ingot will be 1.4" wide X .9" deep X 5.25" long

    At this time, I'm only doing the Cast Boolit's logo, there is an additional cost to have other molds made.

    NOTE - This does not include the shipping cost to each one of you.
    The cost of shipping to each one of you would be MFRB of $14.35 and I believe I can get upto 4 molds in that box.

    Final cost is $17.50 ea mold + $14.35 shipping USPS MFRB to your door.

    Here is the catch- This process wont begin until I get the money together for creating the mold, so each one of you will have to pre-pay before parts get made.

    I would prefer USPS Money Order, it insures you and is easier for me to manage. I would accept paypal, but you MUST add the additional fee of 3.75% for sending to me.

    If sending through PayPal, please put a note in your $ that tells me your CB screen name, having a hard time associating you all...

    If you want to use Paypal, PM me directly and I'll give you my email to send the funds.

    See below for the discussion thread

    ACTIVE - 4 cavity Ingot molds

    Put me down for 4 please.

    Prefer to do the PayPal method as that is more convenient and the $2.51 difference is well worth me not having to buy the MO and pay that flee plus mailing it.

    Paid Via PayPal this evening.

    Put me down for 4 also.

    Payment via PayPal

    I'm with StuBach, I'd rather pay the "convenience fee" than go to the post office.

    Jon- I'm confirming with you now, that is the ingot size. I've updated this detail into post #1 of this thread.

    Thanks,

    Lakehouse

    Lee, Saeco and others have been making them for years. NOE has been CNC machining out of Alum for a few years. With a 1200 degree F melting point, these will last forever if properly used.

    Just like the pic in post #1. It's a block at the side of mold, approx 1.25" x 1" x .75" that you can lock onto with pliers, or drill it out to attach your preferred handle.
