Hi all,


Discussions recently on tooling have been quite good in sharing the information and skills around.  Similar to a thread in the General category, it would be great if people could share the tools that they are designing.  I am sure this would be usefull for ideas for your own tooling projects etc, especially as we are all doing something quite specific, and often don't have people around to bounce ideas off.


To get a decent quality picture, make a drawing of the view you want, then save as *.tiff, or *.psd (you then get to pick resolution).  Convert and trim in your favourite phot editing program.


It will also be usefull to state the following:

Process - injection moulding, diecasting, investment casting etc


Part Weight

and any other interesting notes about the design
