Rolling with nitrogen
I had some issues with the nitrogen. It is pretty good stuff, but getting the ratio down is tricky. Also, the stuff sometimes keeps on swelling even after it comes out of the mold. I got a pile of pregnant looking roller tanks setting in a pile. If for some reason you might want a swollen bodied roller, send me a message with your order and I will throw in an extra body while supplies last. I had to go back through all the tanks and pick out the bad ones. Grrrrrrr.
The good part about the nitrogen is it seems to allow me to create larger solids than previously without shrinkage. I had to fight with the alignment again, but I think it is acceptable.
I think I will cut a new tank on Tuesday. With the new 90 pin die and a bag of nitrogen I am feeling stupidly optomistic.
Will post more when something happens.
