Small thermoforming press

Repurposed the old woodworking vise into this thermoforming plastic press. Surface area is 3x8" so it will be nice for the smaller pieces.





Hmm, that's weird. The server allows the images unless something has changed...will have to check that. Thanks for letting me know. These should be visible to KN members.

This foam is available at a import tool shop called Harbor Freight in the states. This is a neoprene type that for me is decent. I do a handful of the Kydex types so this does what I need for my infrequent uses.
