Steps to Encase the Toothbrush Timer

Virginia Berman

To make 50 timers we needed to find a solid, light, clear, firm, case with a hole in the middle for the button. Sounds easy.  We tried 3-d printing, using the small  LED candle holders and buying coin holders but nothing has fit yet. So we are using epoxy--strong enough, clear, works but we cannot mass produce this.  It takes us 3 separate pours to make one (each pour needs 48 hours to dry).  We are still on the quest for a solid, clear, hollow case that feels good in a child's hand.  

An early case was 3 D printed in space ship style.  It was pretty but too heavy to mount on the mirror.
