Hi,

As I am fairly new to saopmaking, I am again asking your your help. Does anyone know where the best place to buy soap loaf moulds and a cutter is?

I have 'googled' for them and have not found anything suitable. I need a loaf mould that will take a recipe that uses 2lb of oils (preferably also a bigger one as well).

Again let me thank everyone of this forum and you are really helpful.:)

Hi Ed and welcome!

I get mine form this company and there really helpful - www.soapmakers-store.com

They hold 2lb and there plastic. Be careful as they can split easily.
Or there's Denny on ebay, his are more durable, but make a bigger slice.
I bought my cutter from ancient wisdom off the net. There's also Soap tub and Soap kitchen on the net too.

Happy soap making! ;)

Thank you both for your posts.

I have looked at your Sheabutter Cottage web site and printed off the details as I found you after my post!

Thanks Bubmle Bee for the additional web site, I haven't found that one. I will take a look now.

Once again thanks.:)

I'm afraid I would stear clear of the soaptub at the mo unless you have weeks to wait on your order, I placed an order on the 1st and after 2 weeks got no reply to emails or telephone calls :( Have you tried ebay or ebid they both have a good selection

You can use alsorts as a mould. For loaves i use a silcone loaf tray. Anything will do aslong as it has some give in it so you can get your soap out.

Theres a couple of cutters on ebay, I dont use them, I might once i get my website sorted, but i cant really get soap slices to sell that well on ebay, so dont bother lol

Injection molding is a manufacturing technique for making parts from plastic material. Molten plastic is injected at high pressure into a mould, which is the inverse of the desired shape. The mould is made by a mold maker from metal, usually either steel or aluminium, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. Injection molding is very widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest component to entire body panels of cars. Services offered by providers of liquid injection molding include bonding, design assistance, graphics, tool or mold making, prototype or market entry molding, low volume production, high volume production, micro molding, large part molding, insert molding, two-shot injection molding, stamping services, assembly services, just-in-time capability, and packaging and shipping.

I can give you a really cheap alternative to loaf moulds. I found that loaf moulds were quite expensive so I started using tuppaware boxes. Has always worked for me so maybe it would be good for you too ^.^
