    LEGO Head Mold

    Iím floating this as a random idea asked by a friend. Would anyone have interest in a mold to cast lead copies of the LEGO head for loading in 9mm? Fun idea if powder coated in yellow is the idea.

    I started a similar idea earlier as well. I'm in, for either 9 or 40. Would be cool to be able to keep the double sided ability, but that will probably be difficult to do. Maybe have half the cavities be the hollow point "side" and the other half the solid, that way you can still have a flat/bevel base, but two cavities in one mould I'm sure would be expensive

    The double end could be maintained mould would cast hollow point down on the pin and pour on the "solid" end. shouldn't be a problem. I think I would remove the snap together steps though

    I think those snap together ends are one of the things that identify it as a Lego head. I would want them on my mould

    Would it have potential for a multiple projectile load?

    Next question, does anyone interested have the skill set to lay out the dimensional drawing? I, sadly, do not but if someone can point me in the right direction Iím not opposed to learning.

    I think I'd have to have one of these if it makes it to the group buy!

    Might be a good boolit! Pretty much a wadcutter!

    I believe I have some dimensional drawings for the head. If I had a head to measure I could measure it myself, I'll look.

    Lakehouse is working on a design for us on this one. I was able to find dimensional drawings and miced one of my sons LEGO heads to verify. More to come so stay tuned.
