Vacuum former

From Squirrel's Lair




Material sizes

  • 26" square for the big vacuum former
  • 16" square for the reducer frame

Materials to use

  • got some 1/8"styrene worked
    • John in vid says 45ish s
    • 150-180C
  • makralon doesn't work well
  • ABS
    • 150-180C

Things to do right next time

  • put the mold high on the pedestal if you want the vacuum to suck the material around the bottom edge. This will trap it, so only do this if you want it somewhat caught. Learned working on Bike Seat Cover.
