Hello fabbers-

I produce plastic injection molds for jewelry, cheifly by CNC and pantograph, and die sinking/hand engraving methods. I have a customer who requires an injection mold for a coin frame bezel pendant that has a twisted rope edge on the outside as is commonly seen in jewelry catalogs...It will hang on a common twisted rope chain, about 4mm, and have a coin about the size of a silver dollar in it. A rubber or RTV mold, or tooling as you engineers say, will not give the level of detail he wants. Anybody know of a way to create a cavity of the profile of rope chain to accomplish this ( by EDM or whatever),or possibly a metalized epoxy type mold, etc.? Anyone want to give a bid on the job? I am making other molds for this customer, but not able to do this one.
