I know how to pick the hard projects

Today I was able to pour silicone on 5 different molds that I started last week. The week was hectic for me, but I am glad to have started off this week on a productive note. So now I have a few more molds finished on 3 of the projects that I am working on. After these molds sit for at least 16 hours I will remove the original parts inside, and then post-cure the rubber in an oven.

The real test will come when I make test casts. Although each of these molds will be suitable for casting under pressure, there is still the possibility of trapped air pockets if I did not plan the mold well enough.
