Do a search in your local area for pattern maker or check for Tool and Die shops. If by chance you are near central Ohio, there is one here I can recommend.

I did a local search and nothing around here. I'm looking into using the bcc 8009, but I would rather have an aluminum one made. I did the math on my mold and if I wasn't goes to back fill it, it would take 13 gallons. I know a CNC mold would be a little expensive up front, but would last a long time. I would be willing to ship my mold.
