your vacuum is beyond the gauge!! … isn’t there a lesser amount of vacuum that is ideal? I thought it would suck too much resin or something. can you show a pic of your catch pot please and what’s next? how about a much bigger contoured piece. go big! I want to see how it goes.
what’s the lowest temperature water you can boil in your vacuum?
that shape you are making is so simple I have polycarbonate that’s very thin I plan to make the same if not a bit shorter. I like the shape. there’s a youtube video to bend the stuff sure I can figure it, but you’ve gone this extreme construction way with a simple shape. wonder how strong it would be vs easy polycarb. with this shape you can make it as strong and stiff as possible it seems. what is the point…stiff or strong? because the polycarbonate wont break but it will bend and crush everything under. assuming the worst. just Velcro I like more.
