I just found out that you make Atlas Stones yourself with a mold, you don't order the actual stones. FML.

Are you sure you can't order them? That would suck for your delivery man.   I never really thought about it though since I never really wanted one.

You probably can, but I guess most people buy the molds. Shipping pure weight is super expensive lol

Been looking into it and while not complicated, it has a learning curve.  Especially regarding air bubbles and manipulating the weights with either shredded packing peanuts or lead fishing weights/pellets.   There's also something to be said for making your own mold.  But if you know someone, it'd be easier to borrow theirs.

Lol, shows how much I know about atlas globes.  I thought you'd use a smaller mild to make a lighter globe

The size is what controls the weight of the stone.
there are molds for all kinds of sizes and weights.
