Cylinder molds

Are there any other mold suppliers for wooden molds than Blockhead? Thanks much.

http://www.hotblocktools.com/Molds.html

^ That's the shop of Gary Guydosh, who learned his moldmaking from Walter Evans. I've never met him or seen one of his molds directly, but have been told that he makes good tools.

Art Reed does good work on a wood lathe, I have some of his round blocks and they are very nice. He has a website with contact info you can find with a quick search.

Art Reed is one of my favorite glass people in the world.
The sweetwater line of Jersey style glass was the single best I've ever seen.

His site says to give him a call, it might be very long distance.

I do not know.
Googling Graphite cylinder molds yields up a lot of sources if you like graphite.

Last time I checked in they said he passed and weren't taking orders. That was a few years ago.
