Replacing a Brass Shower Door Handle

Overview

The original brass shower door handle, over time, cracked and broke.  The homeowner contacted the door manufacturer for a new one and was informed that the handle was discontinued, however a custom replacement could be purchased from another company.  The cost of the replacement handle was substantial.  A replacement "Cold Cast Brass" handle could be molded and cast with Oomoo® 30 silicone rubber, Task® 9 performance casting resin, and Brass Metal Powder for a fraction of that cost.
