Label/Tube-In HDPE Casting Mold.

This high quality and professionally machined HDPE label casting block allows you to cast up to 4 different pen blanks at the same time. 

Use without the stoppers as a regular HDPE pen blank mold. Or use with the silicone stoppers to make tube-in clear cast blanks. Stoppers are tapered and will accommodate a wide range of kits, Gone are the days that you will need a mold for every model of pen kit!

With the high quality silicone stoppers you are also able to stack the molds in your pressure pot neatly and conveniently for ease of use. 

This mold comes with 8 silicone stoppers that will easily accommodate brass tubes that range anywhere 8mm to 10.5mm. The HDPE mold measures 4 5/8 x 7 x 1", with each of the 4 cavities measuring 3/4" x 5 7/8".

A mold release (such as Stoner's) is not required, but is recommended for easier de-molding. Extra stoppers will be available separately.

    I was lucky enough to get one of these before they were sold out. I tried it a couple of days after I received it and here is what I think. I liked how easy it was to get my tubes into the mold, I didn't have to struggle with ensuring that the plugs were fully inserted like with other molds. I figured when I bought it that I would have to turn it upside down and play "Whack a Mold" with it to get the blanks out. The issue I did have with it was my own fault. I placed one of the plugs at the end of the cavity so I was unable to remove it after casting before getting the blank out. I ended up ruining a blank figuring out how to get it out. So if you decide to get this mold center your blank so you can get both plugs out. If you don't then you will have to try and pry them out. What I liked: Easy to get the tube in, can do may type of pen tube that fits the stoppers, What I didn't like: I uses more a little more resin than my other molds, slide real easily on my HTPE pot rack. Would I get another. Yeah if they ever are in stock long enough :)

    Hi Dawn,
    When using these molds with the stoppers, how many of them can be stacked in a 2.5 gallon pot??

    Hi Mike!

    2.5 gal??? Hey, I thought that you had a couple of 20 gallon!

    Seriously, Not all 2.5 gal pots are created equal, so it kinda depends on what you one have. (IE my Harbor freight pots are taller than my Binks, and both of those are quite a bit taller than my CA Tech Pots etc.. ) ....So..The bottom of the mold to the top of the installed stoppers mics out at 1.70. That should help in figuring how many will fit! :)

    Any Idea when stoppers are going to be available. For the last two mold I bought I receive two sets of medium and two sets of small stoppers. Meaning I could only make two tubes of each size per mold.

    Hi Dawn & Ed,
    Happy new year! Will we be able to just order the stoppers?

    Happy New Year Linda!!

    Yep, I hope so! I know it's in the mold maker's plans. He wants to have stopper sets available for the other popular kits as well. I think the biggest hang-up for him right now is time ( re Dayjob). Hopefully, by the time we get to see you, we'll have them available. (fingers crossed!!)..... Are there sizes that you would like to see??

    Hi David,

    I have been in contact with the maker. The molds are done, but he still needed to make the stoppers. I am sure that they will be restocked as soon possible. Things can be a little crazy and time seems to disappear around the holidays, especially when he has a young familiy and a day job.

    Thank you for your patience!

    What size tubes do the plugs accept? Are there other plugs for larger tubes? What size is the blank (3/4 7/8)?

    Hi Richard, Sorry I didn't realize that I failed to put that info on the page. It's been updated now.

    This mold comes with 8 silicone stoppers that will easily accommodate brass tubes that range anywhere 8mm to 10.5mm. The HDPE mold measures 4 5/8 x 7 x 1", with each of the 4 cavities measuring 3/4" x 5 7/8".

    Stoppers for larger tubes as well as the smaller 7mm tubes is something that I believe Eddie is working on.

    I hope that helps!

    Dawn
