DIY Vacuum Press Mods Using Plastic

06 Sep


I came across a really nifty site where woodworkers have reconfigured their vacuum presses for veneer work using a host of plastics including HDPE and PVC sheets as well as vinyl, pressure, and braided tubing. Lots of great pictures and ideas… when you see wood, think King StarBoard! Just click on the image below to visit the site…

    Dear sirs:

    I’m in Nicaragua (Central America) and I need to install a small industry to sell cups o bowls to serve hot products like coffe or soup or to serve cold products like ice cream.

    I want a machine that thermoforms glass, cups, bowls, or other. It could be with polypropylene or other.

    Please let me know if you have it, and were to find the raw material to produce the cups, etc.
