This proved to be very difficult because his choices were to machine his own parts out of plastic or to make molds using a 2 ingredient mold making material.

Machining parts wasn’t really feasible, and the 2 part mold making material was extremely costly. When Stan started making his own molds, he didn’t know much about mold making and it cost him. The molds would cure, but the parts would float or a bubble would get trapped wasting the mold leaving behind a big block of useless rubber. It took Stan about 6 years of mold making setbacks, but Stan finally used his Material Science training to develop a better and more forgiving mold making material …ComposiMold.
