Yup, I'm still needing a new lid for mine.

Have you ever tosses around the idea of thermoforming the shells?

I got a message last night that the 5th mold is done! I paid for it and it should be here in a few days. With as much bad luck as I have been having with shipping lately I'm not going to be happy until it gets here safely. This mold needs a few inserts turned on the lathe, but after that I'll be ready to make the trip to Phoenix and pushing plastic.

There is a shelf inside the shell that the one-way bearing sits in. The shelf has a top and bottom and the top would probably not be able to be formed using this process.

The last mold arrived today! I will need a little more time on the lathe to make the alignment pins for this mold and then plan a trip to Phoenix.
