Here's the result of the first casting attempt on the indexers stand. It is not perfect, and i luckilly know why. The shop where i got my supplies from, didn't have in stock the (black) pigment i needed, and offered another type which is not made for polyurethane resin, but instead for liquid glass! I decided to try it, and once the mixture was poured into the mould, i could clearly see the reaction. There was bubbling, and resin expanded way more than normally, out of the mould. Anyway, after lots of sanding and filing, i sort of 'saved' the part:

It's been a long time, but as always RL is in the way.. Anyway, i finally received some screw 'cages' as i call them, and fitted them to the indexer stand. Here's the result:



That's a 4mm inner diameter, and you can see the bronze part next to the stand:



Next i need to build and mold its' couple, so i can have the pair ready.
