Domes for Rusty's UAP1 Plate and Frame

I’ve got domes galore made for Rusty’s UAP1 plate and frame for sale.

There are 2 shapes available at the moment - the standard hemisphere dome and an elongated flat top dome. In addition, there are 3 materials, clear polycarbonate, black ABS, and white hi impact styrene. The domes have the dimples in the locations that line up with the mounting locations on the UAP1 plate, so you will drill holes where you need them.

Prices and details:

1) Clear polycarbonate = $30 each shipped, or 2 or more for $25 each

0.080" thick (2mm) clear polycarbonate weighs about 73 gms and are very strong to protect those expensive electronics. Polycarbonate (Lexan, Makrolon, etc) is the strongest plastic and won't shatter like acrylic, PET-G, and other clear plastics that you can buy at a cheaper price. These are the real deal if you care about your electronics.

2) Black ABS = $20 each shipped, or 2 or more for $15 each

0.093" thick black ABS weighs about 70 gms and is almost as strong as polycarbonate. The black ABS has a "stippling" pattern on the surface.

3) White Hi-Impact Styrene = $20 each shipped, or 2 or more for $15 each

0.093" thick white Hi-Impact Styrene weighs about 68 gms and is almost as strong as polycarbonate. The white styrene is paintable.

Please PM me if you are interested and let me know which dome shape and material you prefer! I will ship internationally, but the buyer pays the extra postage.

Testing the impact strength of different plastics.....polycarbonate is the way to go!

You can get the flat G10 ring from Rusty:

and
http://www.shop.aglhobbiesllc.com/Fr...-CC-Plate.html

This is the pattern for the dimples, and yup, I'm sure that you can buy one of the plates and bolt it to your frame.

What is the diameter of your plate on your frame? I may be able to make a dome to fit it as well....

You mean a hemisphere or an elongated flat top dome? I've got a hemisphere pattern with about a 6 7/8" diameter that I could make a form and then a dome with. However, this size would be larger than the Rusty UAP1 plate so I'm not sure how you would attach to it. Unless you are talking about a different frame?
