OK those are all epoxy resins. They stick to just about anything.

Just watched the vid and really love the blue color and design of the blank mold. Iíll check out the blanks on your site when I have time later.

Great Video John, and I liked the music - not at all a distraction to me. But your calming voice almost lulled me to sleep - just kidding.

As a wood segmenter, I really like what these molds offer those who don't want to "play with little sticks." The design and color opportunities are wonderful - keep up the good work and good luck. Variety and choices are good.

A very minor thought - mostly for those not familiar with segmented blanks that are best placed equi-distance from the middle of the pattern (i.e., the end caps/segments are the same thickness. Consider sanding the ends to fit the tube before gluing in the blank to insure equal dimensions. No critique for what you did for this video - To me you nailed the dimensions; not an easy skill for newbies who will try these molds.

Well done.

John, I have been watching these on Facebook and most of the people talking about them have been using either epoxy or polyurethane (Alumilite) with these molds. I do not recall anyone using poly resins in them.

The poly resins heat up while curing and can cause molds made from PLA to warp. I will soon be using another resin, PETG, which can take the heat from those resins.

Thanks, for the comments.

Thanks for the kind comments. I actually had a head cold and sinus issues during the video. So. voice was a bit scratchy.
