Vacuum Forming Machine Plans

Flying Models just published my plans for a simple and cost effective table and sliding frame set up for vacuum forming parts up to about a 6" x 12" base size. It can use plastics such as ABS, PETG and Butyrate from .020 up to .040 and greater and the whole thing can be built on a Saturday morning. It is constructed using common household tools and readily available hardware store or home improvement center materials, and include information for single or two stage vacuum operation. It also offers the facility to place a heat source above the work surface making your wife's oven obsolete except for the mundane task of cooking meals .

It's in the October issue which should be on the newstands in a few days if not already.

Tom

If you weren't so busy writing articles, maybe you could have fullfilled the orders you've been paid for. I am out $90 since January 17, and all I have had is silence and no model(s).

Monday is the deadline before I file criminal charges.

I could have been a great friend as I am willing to share both good and bad reviews. You suck.

Hi Tom,

Can you share the plans and information here for those who don't have access to the mag, like us poor slobs in Africa?

Mike, How many times did you, contact Tom and talked to him? I have done a couple of transactions with him and his kits/services are top notch. I'm sure something has transpired for this to happen and I'm positive that he will make it right and I see no reason to blind side him on a public forum. If I'm wrong then I apoligize but I don't thing so.....talk to him!!!



Best Regards,


Wylie S.



P.S. I believe that Tom also has a regular job, honey do's, weekend do's and his second job...(TMRC) Things happen and communication is the key...My hat comes off for Tom and others that provide us with excellent kits and services in their spare time. It happens they can be up to their ears in alligators and things do get eaten. fall off the plate etc.....

I totally agree with Wylie.Tom has gave me top notch service and top shelf products, shipped them quickly and is always there to offer support.
Mike I think you are way off base by threatening legal action against Tom on a public forum.
It should be handled privately outside of this venue.

Perhaps if you had said
Tom, I know you've been busy, etc, could you check your orders and see if mine might have accidentally got misplaced or overlooked?
The best method would have been a registered letter by mail with a return receipt.


Good day Mike,

Ed
