Hi Marshall,

We made that part from a SLA master, highly polished, RTV tool & clear
urethane casting. It took awhile to get it right, but the end product was
almost perfect. This is something I have been trying to achieve for almost
20 years. We considered it a breakthrough. I'm not saying that this is
the best, but I look for something as good or better at all the shows I
attend. I haven't found 1 yet.

Unfortunately, it is so labor intensive to get the master to this quality,
most projects can't support the cost.

Best Regards,

Rick Harrington
