COMMENTS ON ORDERING:
1.  A hydraulic press will be needed for this unit.  Each student uses the press for about
   half an hour. In small classes of semester length one press per lab is usually  sufficient.
   For larger classes and / or shorter courses, two presses per lab are recommended.

2.  A die cutter is used to cut a laminated picture for the key chain.  That cutter is available
   in two models, one is to be used with a mallet, the other is to be used in a special arbor
   press.  The arbor press is definitely recommended.  The arbor press is recommended
   to use with the checkers and chessmen.

3.  The compression molder comes with a custom nameplate.  We can usually put up to                                                                         22 letters.  Below is a sample picture of one of the nameplates.  I must know what you want                                                                    before it can be made.    PLEASE PRINT

                       

4.   Nameplates can be lost, stolen, or damaged.   For this reason, it is recommended you                                                                       purchase a least two extra.

    The best and most economical oven is an electric kitchen range.
     Several schools have let it be known they needed one and some
