One of your best bets would probably be to make a cast of it in resin or fibreglass.

Thanks For Fixing My Links Kingpin. I was afraid of having to do resin or fiberglass, do we have any links to good places to get resin and or fiberglass?

Where do you find that container, if you don't mind sharing?

Not at all, I found it by chance at a store called savers it's like a good will donation store. It matches all sizes for the cyclotron so that is the big reason I don't want to just cut it up at all.

My Mum has one like it, and seeing as she's had hers for over 20 years, I suspect if yours was made at the same time as hers, it's no longer in production.

I am looking at making a copy of it by using Great Stuff Gap and Crack's Expandable Hard Foam Fill. I will try greasing the inside and filling it with the foam and see if I can get a good copy with it. Also I just released this is the first post I have made on my Build woo hoo.

Just a heads up. Spray foam is just not a good idea I did three molds and only one was good enough to use then it shrank and is now an usable 😳
