Mold building Lego source

Postby PaulC » Fri Nov 16, 2007 10:18 am

For those who use Lego bricks to build mold rubber retaining walls when producing casting tools I have a new source. Mark Mickelsen recently forwarded me this link to buy plain Legos without having to go the special kit route that are in all the toy stores: . http://us.factory.lego.com/pab/default.aspx.
Warm regards,

Paul,

Excellent! I've always wanted a slightly different combination of 'bricks' than what came in my Lego "bucket". This is perfect.

-many thanks,

Jeff

Exactly, Dave. You've got to buy some kit to make a Millenium Falcon or something. I had no idea they sold them like this until Mark told me.

Remember when all they made were the bricks? When I was a kid my friend down the street had a giant box full of them and we'd make all kinds of stuff from the standard rectangular pieces -- including the Millenium Falcon and the Disney Nautilus. :D
Warm regards,

Thrift stores are a good cheap source for legos and other fun items.
