View Full Version : Mold Shoe Material?

What I am calling the mold shoe is the "bushing" that slides back and forth under the ti-bars, to help support them. (has bar radius in it to fit)
I have been asked to build some, and am wondering about material. the sample I was given seems to be maybe Ampco bronze.
I was wondering if some nylon type material would work?

I just use bronze stock and copied the basic design of the old platen shoe.
