    Bakelite ashtray fascia 3D print

    Since ashtrays were standard equipment on TRs since Comm number 42000 on and rarely found today, seems to me there a need for a source. Iím one of the semi-lucky owners who has the metal tray, but not the Bakelite fascia. With the advancement and availability of 3D printers, a pretty darn good replica could be made. Before I invest the time in measuring an original and ginning up a file, I thought Iíd check to see if someone hasnít already done this? Thereís probably lots of engineering-types amongst us.

    Someone made repro ashtray fronts a few years ago but I think that they cast them from a mold of the original. This was before 3D printer took off. No idea who though, sorry.

    Found who molded the repros from this thread : https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/triu...-t3883455.html

    This was from 2011: "Marty Jones is no longer making them as his mold broke. He does, however, have some left to sell. He can be reached at: 352 270 8149" from 2011 not current!

    Hello All,

    Just to close this thread out, Marty Jones (mentioned above) is still doing small-batch reproes, so at this time thereís no need for us to develop a second source. BCF is such a great resource!
