Alternative to the Vacuum Chamber?

Is it possible or practical to use a small gentle vibrator to vibrate the molding platform to get bubbles to rise to the surface and be less problematic? Even a small aquarium air pump (not attached to anything with the air hose) will cause gentle vibration. Placing it on the molding platform would trasmit the vibration to the mold easily. Just a thought.

Hi again John!

I haven't tried it myself, but I've talked to people who use a palm sander (without sand paper) to vibrate the mold board and help bring bubbles to the surface. I imagine the aquarium pump would work in a similar fashion.

Best,
Paige
