The BAY AREA GARDEN RAILWAY SOCIETY[/b][/b] will be holding a clinic on Rubber Mold Making and Resin Casting at TAP Plastics[/b] in San Leandro on December 13th, 2008 from 10am 'til 12 noon. Go the the BAGRS.org[/b] website to get more information. Look under Meetings and Events. This FREE clinic is open to ALL who can attend. All we ask is that you RSVP so we know how many chairs to set up and how many donuts to buy.
BAGRS Members can Login and Register online, otherwise you can shoot me an email at: [email protected] . If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area or are planning a visit at that time, please feel free to stop by.

I've also have been working on our BAGRS.org[/b] website. Both the public and members sections have quite a bit of photos and information. Our Large Scale Manufacture's[/b] Links[/b] page has proved quite popular.

Russ,

Couldn't stand seeing your post go without any response, so here I am. So, er, ah, umm, how about those 'Niners?

That black stuff someone sent me will make great bases to hold my bottles of solvent, paint, etc--to keep them from tipping over. Whatever the material is (and what is it anyway?) it cuts OK with my variable-speed scroll saw, leaving only some beads of melted stuff that chip off easily with a chisel. As for drilling, the stuff drills good and leaves either black powder or shavings--just like wood. BTW, is it toxic to inhale, he asks, after undoubtedly inhaling it? Anyway, the litle bottle hoders will look real nice if I ever get a bit big enough to make a bottle size hole (about 1-1/2 inches, I figure).

Sorry I can't get to your clinic, but you live too far away. :)

Joe,
It's OK, we understand...


We've had a pretty good response so far. It looks like we'll have around 50 people attending the Mold Making Clinic.

So of course you'll post a synopsis of the clinic here on MLS, right? With lots of pictures with circles and arrows?

We had a good turnout on Saturday; I think there were about 40 people at the Mold Making Clinic.

 
 

 
Everyone in attendance said they had a good time and learned a lot.
