If you enjoy clear casting labels, watch parts, skins, hybrids, etc. and are looking for a semi-permanent solution for tube-in casting, then the new Maneater Crafts “DogBone” tube-in casting mould is for you! It’s a single mould solution that is super simple to use and will work with the majority of turning kits on the market (not to exceed tubes over 12.5mm in diameter). It’s literally a one mould fits all solution!! That includes most pen kits, seam rippers, razors and even darts!

What makes the DogBone so special? To start, it is milled from solid HDPE and is virtually indestructible. It won’t warp or crack like silicone moulds. It features two 5.5” x .75” (13.97 x 1.91 cm) chambers and two sets of silicone inserts. One set has small stoppers for 7mm - 3/8” tubes. The other set has stoppers for 3/8” - 12.5mm tubes. The mould body should last for years if properly cared for.

What else is special about the DogBone? Well, the unique design allows the moulds to stack one on top of the other. They will self-align with the included rubber feet and if pressure casting in a 10 lt. pot, you can stack them up to six moulds high and two stacks side by side. That gives you the ability to cast up to 24 blanks at a time!! And best of all, no mould caddy it needed!! That makes this mould ideal for hobby casters and volume casters alike!

The DogBone is strictly intended for tube-in casting since the chambers don’t include bottom plugs to assist with blank removal.

Important Notes:

A release agent must be used due to the rigidity of the moulds. Simply apply the release agent into the chambers and on the silicone inserts, ensuring complete coverage.  Allow to dry before pouring your resin.  Also apply a release agent on the rubber plugs to keep them free of any resin build-up caused by potential spillage. 

A rubberized dead blow hammer will help the demold process greatly.  Lightly rap the bottom and sides of the mould once your blanks have fully cured, then turn the mould over and lightly rap the mould ends against your work bench top to see your blanks release.  Based on personal experience, Alumilite and polyester resin blanks will release with little effort at all.  Epoxy blanks may require a few extra raps or a blast of air from a rubberized nozzle before releasing.
