Clever use of a Pelican case. Now what do you plan to do with this vacuum chamber? You said casting. Are you speaking of something like vacuum bagging? Not sure how it will all work.

Like that........casting without bubbles

Great looking parts!

So I get it. The chamber just draws any bubbles out of the resin. You pour the resin in your mold, put the whole thing in the chamber, draw a vacuum, wait a little period, and it's done.

Cool!

Can you tell us what kind of plastic that is you used to make those parts? What was the resin?

Cheers,
