    That is a very easy mold.Glue the parts with double-sided adhesive tape in a frame and pour silicon from one corner in it.Make that slow that it has enough time to release possible airbubbles.

    Ive put a rough unpolished brass disc in the centre to give the overall look, I can't wait to see the final rubber mold.

    Made a mold, not 100% happy but I'm going to cast some black rubber just to get an idea of how it looks

    I modelled one about 10 years ago. But I never got around to moulding it. I should dig it out and see how close it was.
    Yours looks fantastic.

    Thanks for your kind comment Mark
    Please please do, this molding process is a little confusing to me, there's that much different materials on the market I don't know what to go for, I want it to look the same as is and not look shiny like smooth silicone, my nephew works for a company that uses rubber for gaskets, he is going to find out on Monday next week to see what they can do, if I can get these done correct I will knock you a few up
    Im using the measurements @gonk27 posted, post #603 so We are not sure if these are even correct, I can easily make more at different sizes.
    when I've got a couple made up with brass discs I will send you one for you take a closer look at, that is if your willing to give me your input to get these correct ?
