This last year I have had to seek other backup plastics – because both my primary and my backup sources of plastic were out of stock at the same time. This was a first.
I spent a few months testing more plastics and found two more viable back up supplies. I now have four different brands that I use to make my pro series tools. 3D Fuel, Overture, Duramic, and Novamaker. 3D fuel and Overture have a more matte finish, while Duramic and Novamaker are more glossy in appearance.
This means that you might receive tools that differ slightly in color, texture, and overall look and feel. This does not effect the performance of the mold. There is no variance to quality or usability.
Hopefully supply chains go back to normal, and then my tools will have a consistent appearance like did for the first 4 years of business. But as of now, there is nothing I can do about this. Color and surface finish of the tools will vary slightly.
