    our current project has us building a multi pcs mold, in the past we have used 1/4" ply covered with a alum tape to cinstruct the joining flanges ans added indexing buttons,, can any here offer any pointers or new ideas?

    I usually use melamine faced particle board & fix it to brackets of the same that are attached with a couple of dabs of hot melt adhesive, some plasticine tooled out "square" makes up for minor fit inconsistancies . Jeff.
