Item details

Would you like to try your hand at casting your very own clear cast pen blanks? This is a great place to start. Through a process called "Tube-in" casting, you can attach small objects or items or materials to the brass tube. Things like snakeskin, decorative papers, decals, stamps, carbon fiber, fiberglass braiding or any other object or material you can think of! You can cast up to 4 blanks at a time and each mold comes with 8 silicone plugs that are used to plug the tube ends. FOR LESS MONEY, YOU CAN EFFECTIVELY DOUBLE YOUR PRODUCTION when compared to other pen molds on the market!! They are reusable for many castings and provide a great way to seal each end of the tube. The molds are great for using in a pressure vessel and you can do so without worrying about resin leaking into the tubes.

** A word of caution; These are not meant to be used for "Tube-In" color casting with pigments and dyes. If you do so, your results will be less than desirable. They are meant for clear Tube-in casting **

Each mold is hand crafted and poured using premium silicone rubber. We use a process called "de-gasing" with specialized vacuum equipment to ensure that each mold is air-bubble free and will have a long life. It also ensures that that the blanks you create will not deform like other lesser molds can do. These molds will produce four beautiful crystal clear blanks that are ready for squaring up and turning!

This specific mold can be used with any Slim-Line style pen kit available! (Just a reminder; Each mold cavity (4 each) has the words, "Hobble Creek Craftsman" embossed in the bottom).

The mold is compatible with Alumilite, Poly Resin, Epoxy based resins as well as Liquid Diamonds. Proper care and maintenance of the mold will ensure a long life! We suggest using Alumilite strictly due to the fact that it is superior in every way to the other choices, both for your health and for longevity of your product. This is all predicated, of course, that you actually take care of the mold and clean it each time you use it!

As long as the tube length is no more than 2.10" long and the largest inner diameter is no more than a standard Slim-Line tube, this mold will be compatible.

**This mold will also cast tubeless, solid blanks simply by using the plugs inverted**

**We don't recommend color casting with pigments and dyes, using "Tube-In" casting methods**

***Each mold will come with 8 silicone plugs, enough to plug each hole***

***We try to keep this item in stock, but sometimes demand requires a one to two week lead***

If you have questions about specific pen kits or tubes, please feel free to ask through the convo function.


FAQs

Lots of folks want to know if I can do engraving. I'm not set up to do such work, but many of my customers have received their pens and taken them to a local engraver and had the work done there.

I can do most custom requests. However, there are some images that work better than others. If you have a specific image you want me to look at, please make sure that it is a clear and correct reproduction of the original. The techniques I use can wash out some colors. Custom work starts at $24.00 per blank due to re-tooling and image reproduction issues.

    I ordered 3 molds from them. 2 were fine but the third is unusable as the botom side is only 4mm not the 6mm as are the sides. I contacted seller and he says I never ordered from him!

    Was not expecting this item to be available until the end of June (per shop listing), so was pleasantly surprised when receiving notice and showed that it was shipped the same day as ordered (June 6th). Thank you for the extremely fast service and quality mold. (Received June 8th) P.S. Thanks for the treat that was “sweet”! :-)
