Hi everyone. An idea I had which I haven't tried yet .just waiting for the wire .I thought it might help those who instead of grooving polystyrene .My plan is to wind a double flat spiral using 2 sheets of this contact adhesive plastic .wind one from the middle and on the other sheet in the opposite direction so it can be placed on top of the first one. Windings can be spaced and then spacer removed or adjusted if needed. Once I'm happy I could use spray foam injected through the plastic and between the wires and trowled of level with the plastic . Without the coil being enclosed at this point there shouldn't be pressure to warp or alter the windings. I hope it helps and I will let you know

Hi all,

Here are some progress photos of the modified vacuum former platen.
I have inserted some nylon spacers into the 6 mm holes and made the grooves 1.5mm deep after some advice from Ian.
Only had 1,000 to press in, still quicker than re-machining the top again.
Added some 40 mm aluminium spacers to bottom side (the Lexan tank is 40 mm high and 10 mm thick) to prevent collapse when vacuum is applied.
There will be a fine stainless steel mesh placed between mold and platen to further help even out vacuum flow.
Areas that are not covered by the mold during forming, will be sealed with the blue plastic wrap you see on the cnc table. It comes on a 300 mm wide roll and I generally use it to protect parts once machined but is perfect for the job.
I have used what materials I had laying around the workshop and modified to suit....

Did some testing on vacuum last night and it works just fine.
Tonight, I'll assemble everything, then its just the heating section to do.

Btw, those with a keen eye may have noticed the grooves are offset to the holes, they should have been centered on the holes but when I zeroed the CNC, I didn't notice the offset until it was on the second set of angle cuts and by that time, I thought, don't bother, its not going to stop it working.

More later

Cheers

Muntari

Great work, Muntari.

Wish to see some video, how it works, if possible.

Hi all the mosaic mesh in post 51 worked out well .I added an extra layer for screen spacer and more strength.I have only 3mm between coil wire and the outer ,I may need more.One question ,The coax I was going to use can just be detected by my detector ,could this be a problem ? Thanks.

Not really, if it is properly fixed to lower shaft.
