Thread: Wear ring mold

  1. #1

    Wear ring mold

    Not sure if it would work but it got my mind wondering.

    I just ordered a new wear ring. What if I could make a mold from it. Then melt my old wear rings down. Then when I need a new wear wring just slide the mold inside the old one and fill it up with the melted plastic.

    Brand new!!
    Probably a mess to melt the old wear ring down but it was just a though.

    I'm assuming the wear ring is a form of Delrin. Delrin has a melting point of 350.
    hmmm this could be possible.

    Liquid wear ring, anyone ?

    The time that would take would be more valuable than buying a new one. Don't you think?

    JB weld can withstand temps between 500-600 for a mold.
    Here are some low melting point modling metals.

    Here are some casting metals.

    I would think if you had a new wear ring and casted it. Then when it got old you could just put wax paper on the cast slide the old wear ring over it and fill er up.

    You would have new wear ring for like 10 dollars and 30 minutes time.
