Bad news. My molds have now deteriorated to the point that I can no longer mold an acceptable set of pads. I have been molding all week, and they are just not up to the task.
To make new molds is very expensive, and I don't have the orders to cover the cost of the molds and materials, so for the moment I'm out of the tower pad business.
That said, I hope to change that in the near future, and may be in a position to order molds again. When I get there, I'll reach out again to gauge interest. If there's enough interest to cover the cost of the molds, I can take the risk and order a set to continue.

I didn't start making these to make money. I started this to help out a buddy who had crappy tower pads. It was a fun project, and from the start I said as long as I don't lose money (just my own time), I'd continue to make them. It's just not the best time right now.

That's unfortunate. I'm first on the list when you are able to get back up.

Did those boots work out for your tower? I can use some new ones, mine keep coming around a little bit.

Thanks for taking the time to make them- I wish I had taken you up on a set earlier. If you decide to make more, count me in!
