I really like this idea. I needed to make some plastic parts and this allows a little creativity in colors. This is a purple and black cylinder that I did. I used a 2 & 1/4" aluminum cylinder and turned some maple blocks to fit inside and used a manually operated log splitter (the type that uses a bottle jack) to compress it. This is after a quick rough machining on a hobby metal lathe. This stuff is going to work out great for the parts I need to make! Thanks for the video, it gave me a great head start on how to go about it.
