Vacuum Former

17 posts in this topic

Anyone interested in a tutorial on building a vacuum former?

If so, I will do one that uses a hot plate and heats the plastic from the

bottom. Also, it does an excellent job.

You can find a pic of stencil forms I am making in hard bait gallery.

Where did you get the punch plate from and what size are the holes etc? I found it at McMaster Carr but unsure the size of holes and spacing. Ive been unsuccessful trying to find it local.

Thanks

bbf, i got mine at our local tractor supply company. I have found that 3/16 inch holes spaced 1/2 inch apart is good for my platen(punch plate). I made sure that there are ateast 3 holes will be under my baits at all times to insure even pull around them. I started out with 30ths but went to 15ths as it pulls easier and cuts alot better than the thicker stuff.

Hope this helps!

Jeff
