Very early production Two Cavity Geo. A. Hensley (Hensley & Gibbs) #9 Wadcutter Mould
© 2014 – Thomas C. Dugas
A very early two cavity Geo. A. Hensley mould. I would estimate its production at about 1934 or 1935. The rare early features are:
1. The opposed pins
2. The style of venting
3. The rivet style hinge pin on the handles.
This is the only mould I have seen with all three of these features. I had only read about these features scattered across many letters and catalog references. I know very little about these early experimental designs other than George like to experiment with features to improve casting performance.
