Large Fluid Bed

4 posts in this topic

Hi there guys I have been learning alot from here lately. I am currently using a small fluid bed and getting good results with single dipping jigs. I want to build a larger fluid bed thats is about 10inch by 10inch. Dose anyone have any experience building or using larger size fluid beds? Is it possible? Are there vibrating motors in them? I just can't seem to find anyone that has built a larger one any suggestions would be great.

Thanks

I have one that is 12 x 16. I bought it from Component Systems. It has a vibrating motor. I did not like it. I couldn't keep the eyelets open on jigs, 1/4 oz thru 1-1/2 oz. The air flow was not consistant from side to side. I took it apart and divided the chamber into 2 compartments so I could adjust air flow on each side. This helped some but I think it would have worked better if it had 4 compartment instead of 2.

Dlaery thanks for the reply. I was a bit pestimestic if the larger ones would work good or not. I guess for high volume vinyl is the way to go
