Re: mold costs

Kathe Robin <kathe@...>


While I'll be the 1st to admit that $28K sounds high for an air brake
mold, I've been designing molds and getting them into production use for
more than 25 years.

If you look in the archives there is a series of items related to mold
manufacturing and costs running from around 8/8/00 to 8/20/00, which
also contains significant feedback from Dennis Storzek of Accurail, as
well as some hard dollar figures for models you have seen and handled.
