The invention relates to‘mold false work con
struction, and more especially to a knock-down
molding form for concrete or other plastic work.
The primary object of the invention is the pro
vision of such a structure in which steel, wood,
plastic, or any other type of material rigid enough
to hold its shape can be molded. A further object
is the provision of such a mold which may be
handled by unskilled labor in assembly, use and
