Shrink resin casting

We upgraded computers at work and I lost my link to a vehicle forum covering shrink resin casting. Anyone familure with what I am talking about?

I think it covered Naphtha mold shrinking and some water based resin that shrinks 50%. I can't find the info anywhere.

There is an ongoing thread on TB I think with the link you are looking for.  I think it is one of the workbench threads.

That was what got me thinking about the toppic. There was a step-by-step how to discution on using a water based resin and then a naphtha/silicone mold to reduce an O scale vehicle to HO.

Yep they are. They allow internet access at work. Our main computer is for IMC, Inforad, and reccord managment. We also have a Moto/Centracom computer and of corse the 911 terminal.

We had net access when I was working radio, but we couldnt bookmark non work related items. Hence why I would bring my laptop and phone and tether them.  You guys have your ANI/ALI integrated through IMC?

We get ALI pull down info when the server hapens to be working. This always seemed like the weak spot for IMC. Its much more temperamental than the LEAPS/NCIC integration.

We never had an issue at Exeter. The thing that would give us the most problems was when IMC Packet LAN server would go down usually around 0130hrs and you would have to restart it. That and we were a beta testing dept from IMC so every once and a while they would send us a bad build and everything would go haywire for until they could fix it.

Even a buggy version of IMC is lightyears ahead of a "stable" version of Pamet.

New signature? Since when were you doing Springfield?
