CONSTRUCTION OF SOAP MOULDS, TABLE AND CUTTERS
A mould can generally be defined as a pattern constructed for the production of the same shape and size. The making material differs from one operation to another. When one considers the money at hand, he decides whether to start from the primary production level or secondary production level. Referring to the project, the aim is for the establishment of small-scale production. This would employ the use of the manual soap cutters, which is either used to cut the soap produced into bars or tablets depending on specification.
In the constructed works flat hard woods of 20m thickness were cut and assembled by nailing. The constructed woulds have the following dimensions : 15cm long, 38cm wide and 15cm high.
The moulds are rectangular in shape. Handles was incorporated in the mould to make it convenient to be carried about during soap production.
Finally, the five moulds produced were capable of presenting relatively resistance to impact and bending forces as a result of the hard wood that was used. With this the moulds can carry a reasonable volume of soap Surry without collapsing.
