    link posted above. This is really simple stuff to work with. I've used featherlight before and it's a 50/50 mix. Both are in liquid form and once mixed are poured into your mold or what have you. It cures in 20 mins. chopping up lego bits and mixing with acetone is the most assanine thing I've ever heard.

    Well mr. assanine, it works. I offered it as an option for those that don't know where to get anything else. I don't really know what featherweight is, and I can already see someone claiming it being my ignorance, but I am only trying to help others, just like the post was started for.

    EDIT: Featherlight I apologize.

    featherlight is a two part pourable plastic that forms much harder than abs and is easier to work with than melting legos with acetone. I wasn't trying to start a flamewar at all, sorry if I came across that way. I found this site smooth-on.com by answering some of my own questions. How is abs plastic made? How can they inject it into a mold. A. It must be pourable therefore it must be a liquid of some sort. A search for liquid plastic revealed this company.

It can not be melted and used for anything useful except a big stinking glob of melted, burnt dog **** and maybe to get high.
    PVC has one good use. Potato guns.

    Ok.... I'm assuming that the ABS/acetone mixture is a bit on the thick side...or is it? And how thick is the mixture for Featherweight? I don't think i'm that advanced to start making molds but, I would like to mold my monitor to the dash as a beginning project. Hence, filling in the gaps that I already have. How much did the lego and acetone project cost? and how much does the Featherweight cost?
