Abstract : The patent describes an injection mold for vulcanizing the insulation of an electrical cable to a tapered, metal flange mount. The mold has a removable central core assembly comprising a plurality of centrally excised wafers and a pair of centrally groved blocks. The wafers are selected from a set of wafers whose central excisions are graduated in size and the blocks are similarly selected from a set of blocks, whose central grooves are graduated in size. The cable fits into the grooves in the block and the tapered portion of the flange mount fits into the excisions in the wafers. By selecting blocks with suitably sized grooves and wafers with suitably size excisions, differently sized cables and flange mounts can be vulcanized to each other without having to machine a different mold for each individual job.
