open molds

I cleaned up my mess from yesterday and made a new mess when I broke the molds open this morning. Everything came out great except for the main frame of the velocipede. I had a hot tear in the same area on both pieces right next to one of the sprues. Chuck and I had discussed the possibility of this happening due to the thinness of the pieces in some areas and we thought our sprue and gate/vent arrangement would keep this from happening. But I wasn't successful in this. Oh well, it's an easy enough weld seam.
