Need help replacing vintage mold


Recommended Posts

Hoping for some help.  I accidentally melted an old mould that is very important to us and I've had no luck searching around for a replacement.  

If anyone knows where I could buy one - or even has one to spare they would be willing to sell - please send me a message.

The mould (label attached below) was originally labelled as "Easy as ABC gelatin mould", although we just call it the alphabet mould.  Yes there are lots of alphabet moulds around, including new silicone ones, but we need the specific designs on this one to replace the one I damaged.  Depending on the cost, I would consider paying for postage internationally (to Australia).

Thanks in advance!

Thank you so much!  Not only for spotting the auction (I have been checking Ebay myself but stuff comes and goes...) but thanks to your link, I realised that the plastic mold I've been using is most probably a cheap rip-off of a cast-iron cookie mold design by John Wright...

...and there are loads of these available!  I really had no idea...

 

You have made my day 🙂  Thanks again.

@ChrisZ,

 

I'm very happy you found your replacement mold! (mould?)

 

When this thread first popped up I thought you might be talking about some of the tin molds for gelatin or mousse that are plated with copper that were popular back in the 60's and 70's here in the US. As part of my retro country kitch decor in my large kitchen, that I love a lot, I have five of these molds hung on the walls. There is an elaborate heart (smaller) and larger ones of a swimming fish, a leaping fish, a lobster and a rooster. They are all quite detailed with feathers on the rooster and scales on the fish. I have never used then to mold anything, but I just love them anyway.

 

I was hoping I would have something you like that I could send you, but such is not the case, so I'm very glad you found what you wanted.

      Here's a chocolate fail for you - how on earth do molds end up like this? 
      I went to a cooking school liquidation sale this morning, was expecting used equipment but not quite so abused!

       
      I did pick through and found several that looked in good shape.  They can toss this one in the recycle bin!

      I am making molded bunnies for Easter and I am finding that the
      necks are cracking and the head breaks away from the body. I have noticed that the neck is not as thick as the rest of the bunny. Total grams for this bunny is 200.
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this? Oh yeah I didn't mention that after pouring into molds I place in the refridgerator.
      Any suggestions are welcome!
      Cheers

      Hello eGForums,
       
      I'm curious if anyone has purchased these ganache and caramel ruler bars (https://www.tcfsales.com/products/658-ganache-and-caramel-ruler-bars-set-of-2-ea/) from TCF before or has experience with this company? Are they a reputable company?
       
      It costs $87.96 (not including shipping) to purchase 4 stainless steel square bars, measuring 1/2" x 1/2" x 15" L, which seems like a reasonable price relative to other companies. Correct me if I'm wrong. Does anyone suggest other companies to purchase bars from?
       
      On a related topic, I know that a possibly more affordable alternative would be to visit a local metal fabricator and purchase metal bars from them. My concern is purchasing bars that are made from an alloy and finish that is 'food-safe'. Does anyone know what grade/alloy and finish of stainless steel is 'food-safe'? Does anyone know what grade/alloy and finish of aluminum is 'food-safe'?
