Dusty you seemed to have missed post #46. I never said I do not make or want to my price has been the same 300 for a set to do 1000 jackets and cores unless they are long jacket then its 500. Gerald Mattingly the guy that ended up making rings and stuff for Arnold Jewell tried cnc'ing for 400 $ a set 20 yrs ago thats not a real winner. so anyone that can beat 300 a set have at it....
I can easily print those. But not a full sheet. My bed is not that big.
I honestly don't know the use for this thing. It seems it must be a very precise design?
If you make that all those clear plastic things in that kit for $300 I would say that is a pretty good price.
Its not a kit they are finished , also only need polycarb clear piece for the sliding plate theres much more user friendly plastic for the 1400 holes. Also having the ability to grind your own form tools helps they are not just a single angle for loading jackets thats where everybody screws them up...
Brian, being in the car business for 50yrs, I understand your post, but the best restored one in Texas won't go near as low as $30,000. I'm still trying to relate this to bullet making.
$300 is a hell of a deal for that.
That might take a while.
You've got a lot to learn about autos and a couple other things as well.
Don't I know it.

Shore glad that you figured it out young feller.
Hey young feller, have you been watching Barrett-Jackson. I've seen those 55-57 Chebbies going upwards to $300,000. Guess what! at least were a couple Texas cars.Thought you would be interested to know that.
I'll go look, thanks. But I suspect most of those big numbers are for resto-mods running cutting edge crate motors, swapped running gear, exotic paint and interiors etc. rather than old-school true restorations.
Old school were $70,000-$125,00 that I saw, but I haven't seen half of them.
I guess they made 120 million 57 chevys. You never hear of a 56 and i like the 55 myself
I’m partial to the 56. I like that 2 tone and trim piece that goes all the way to the front.
What would be the ideal material for trays?
The ones I have used are some type of Polycarb/Lexan.
I would imagine that HDPE or UHMW would work.
I like the idea of Delrin, my wallet does not like the price.
Good question. Any machinable plastic should work, but I’d be interested in some cheaper alternatives to Delrin. I’m just not too familiar with how well a lot of the stuff out there machines.
HDPE works well.
