    Could you provide some detail on the heating element? I don't know what a "floor heater" is, and nothing that turns up in google looks at all like what I can see in the only photo.

    Nice build Outcast. Reminded me that I started one of these (Vacuum-former) a few years ago and got sidetracked. Need to finish mine one of these days.

    @OutcastZeroOne I don't know much about this other than the "Vac-u-form" I had as a kid. Can you provide a little insight on usage? Such as how do you get or produce your molds, what do you look for in plastic, basically just a few tips on getting started. Thanks.
