Why's that then, you want a one off (coz it's unlikely that you'd sell another one) moulding made, that would take a plug then a mould to be made before the product could be made! Whilst a laminator/plugmaker is doing this, he could instead be making a product from existing tooling, without the problems that you could incur from a new project, and you begrudge a paltry £750.00!!!!!!!!

Best tell him to find a friend to ride pillion with then!

It wasnt until I started working for Gav on a saturday that I realized exactly how much work goes into making a plug and then making a mould from the plug and then preping the mould for its first job.
