Getting lower...DLG Pod Mold set

Down to $90...ouch.... This mold set is for the Ozone Pod with snap-on canopy. There were only 10-Ozones made, wings and tails by Chad Sullivan, pods by be, and Mike Seid facilitated the transactions and packaged and shipped. An Allegro boom fits inside and up to and through the bulkhead.

I also sold pods individually to numerous DLG builders and pilots for scratch builds or morphs. Pods sold for about $95 including hardware and bulkhead.

The blue half is for the top, the red half is for the bottom. The grey male molds fit into the female molds like die-matched molds. No bagging required. Just put the epoxy into the mold, lay the cloth down, and press the male in using hardwood strips and C-clamps. Crank down and hot box. The bottom mold needs a little work around the nose. There are a couple of small (<1mm) chips around the mold shelf/cavity intersection, the mold surfaces are fine. I left the little chips in the molds, and trimmed off the flashing from the part seams. This is faster than trying to repair the mold.

The female cavities are epoxy (RR2000) and WS 404 filler with a urethane (HS18) backing. The male presses are HS18 only.

The pink silicone is the internal press used during the joining of the halfs. I will walk the buyer through the process.

You could also cut the back off the molds and use a bladder instead.

I will also include the bulkhead mold. It is 1.5" polycarbonate blocks with the bulkhead shape etched on one surface. Bulkheads were carbon-balsa-carbon sandwich, then hand shaped based on the embossed dimensions on the part.

Looking for $90 plus shipping. Shipping will probably be about $30 because of the weight, I'm not sure though.
