UPDATE 11/22/2002:  I'm currently working with CraigR and my machinist to create master plugs for both 1st and 2nd/3rd season ear posts.  Once those are finished I will create a mold so I can make them from resin.  Stay tuned for pictures!

I had these custom cast in aluminum, then heat treated for durability and machinability. Since they are solid aluminum, they won't chip, crack, shatter, or warp. Due to the casting process, they have a textured finish. I wasn't sure if I liked the "textured look", so I cleaned them up with emory paper to make them perfectly smooth. They could also be buffed to a mirrored finish! I made a few
pairs and tried all of the above to get the finish I was happy with.
