I have heard that aluminum molds don't last nearly as long as steel molds. Maybe Dennis can comment?
Dick Schweiger (C&BT) proudly told me once that his molds were made of steel. The Branchline box cars
mold that I saw was made from aluminum. With CAD files, I guess molds can be recut once they wear out?

If the tooling, molds are worn, that is partially good news, indicating that they likely have been used a lot… therefore lots of sales… yes?
