    I recently ordered a new 4 cavity ALUMINUM mold from ‘Tom’. Didn’t know Larry had sold business, etc.

    Received it and it was supposed to be READY TO GO. It wasn’t. They worked with me and we got it all ironed out as it was adjustments.

    Casts super bullets! I was pleased, who ever made it and received it in half the time estimated.

    Question for Larry: If I send an email to "tom@accuratemolds.com" will it go to you, or the new owners ? I was preparing to make my first order from them soon, but given this thread, would need some communication and reassurances from them before sending any money. I agree with others that if you have any interest at all in their future, you may want to contact them and ask them to come on here an address the issues.

    That same email is still correct for Accurate Molds.
    A new post office box is shown at the website, since late 2022.
    The same machine shop remains in the same place (not a residence) in SLC.
    I've informed the new Tom of this thread.

    I hope "new Tom" read my comments and respond with a tracking number. Although at this late date, I doubt that it will help.

    I guess they will breath easier since I've written off the $126 I paid for the mold. If they actually mailed it, it was either "appropriated" by a postal employee or ended up under some machinery in one of the pass thru post offices(?).

    I sure do hate to remove Accurate Molds from my bookmarks but don't really have a choice. I will treasure the one accurate mold I have that was purchased before the change in owners.

    Dare I suggest simply giving the new owners a chance to make it right? Some form of contact from them is necessary for those with moulds on order and overdue, hopefully they'll get word of this and be more communicative.. I know a lot of people here remember the Ballisticast fiasco years back, and Pat Marlin of course.

    I received the molds that I ordered today. They look great. When I ordered them it said right on their webpage that they were experiencing an 8 week lead time for deliveries. I got my molds after only 4 1/2 weeks. Some folks are distressed to find out that the people that own the company aren't Tom. Well, "Tom" wasn't Tom either, so there shouldn't be any complaints in that regard. The people that are running the company now might be having equipment issues (or upgrades), or supply chain problems with tooling or components. Any number of things might be causing the delays, but I doubt that they are scammers or unscrupulous. It would be to everyone's benefit if a representative from Accurate Molds would post here to clear up what's going on, and put everyone's minds to ease.

    "Tom" is a nickname I use, my real name is Larry. Since that nickname is synonymous with Accurate Molds, they continued using it.

    They've had a steep learning curve and a few growing pains, but I'm sure you'll get a satisfactory response if you keep trying.
    Well Tom, Larry, I for one am glad you came along and supplied us with some of the best molds available.
    I am also glad you get some time for yourself and family
    I am sure whomever runs the business will do a good job just like you did
    thanks for all you have done

    Yes sir, congratulations on the retirement. Just to throw it out there, I ordered a 210 grain .432 mold 6 months ago and it is outstanding.
