As at least some of you know I had to borrow a phone that would take pictures to upload for this. Also you know that I love my HDPE divider mold and have no trouble releasing the soap. That being said, I have two large molds that DH made for me and I am only using one. The only thing that is needed is a silicone or mylar lining for the bottom of the mold. It has never been used but the one I am using now, I have no trouble with soap leaking or sticking. It is a 36 bar mold, 2.25" x 3" and 3" deep. I am asking $300. I took lots of pictures! The mallet is not for sale, only to show what I use to assemble the sides of the mold into the base.

Sorry, I am spatially challenged in some contexts, so bear with me here. From what you shared, I think each bar would be 2.5" x 3" x 3" - Is that correct??

That would be the size of three bars for me, as mine are typically 2.5 x 3 x one inch, not three inches. Do you cut each bar down, or just sell them as really big bars? Or do you only fill the mold ⅓ full?

No worries, I'll try to explain. The mold is 2.25" x 3" x 3." I only fill it 1/3 full because my bars are 1" thick. But some large outfit soapmakers could fill it completely full if they have a way to make 2 or 3 slabs out of that. I don't remember where but I saw a video doing that. So you can make any size recipe you want, up to what would make it completly full. Note: not 2.5."
