Nice observations and pics on the thin versus thick blaster.
Slightly OT, I was wondering about EPMs in general... raised, indented, flush, my understanding is they are ejector pin marks (EPMs) caused by pins pushing the object from the mould (someone correct me if I'm out as I'm no expert) -
I was wondering is the type of EPM dependent on the force expelled by the pin?
A heavy pin might leave an indented mark.
A moderate pin might leave a flush mark.
A light pin might 'stick' to the plastic and 'pull' it outward, leaving a raised mark.
