The main thing we are going to be doing this time is vacuum forming. Here is a great instructable that outlines the process we will use:
A summary list of the items required:
? 1) Platen (board with a hole in it)
* 2) Pair of frames with clamps for holding plastic while heating
* 3) Stand for framed plastic in the oven
* 4) Oven
* 5) Vacuum
+ 6) Plastic sheets
+ 7) Molds
? 8) Window screen (placed under mold)
? Need it; * Got it; + Bring as much as you want
I have the oven and vacuum so please let us know if you can bring / make the other items in the comments below. We'll only need one set of items 1-5, but plenty of plastic sheets and molds. Anyone already have something they want to form?
P.S. If you've been to my house for a meeting before, you'll be happy to know that we've moved meetings out of the basement into the well lit and larger upstairs.
