Seen these on ebay.

Form Size - 126 x 126
Product size - 250 x 210 x 300

Advertised as being for dental thermoplastics, so goodo.

Has anyone had a play with these, I'm sick of burning holes in the petg using the oven / blow touch / heater and tripping over vacuum hoses / cables etc.

It looks very convenient and not a bad price at around $140.

Hi Grant
I bought one a couple of months ago and it is very useful for making cockpits and windshields.Size is an issue with longer cars,example Maserati MC12.

Thanks Alexis,

I was looking at using it to make molds for the little bits like head and tail lights as well as interiors and windows.

I like the smaller cars anyway so it being small is OK with me.
