thanks for the comments. both are great ideas. I,m looking to make a rc pontoon boat similar to a craigcat basically 2 surfboard shaped pontoons. i will be heating the pipe in a electric oven and sliding a top and bottom form into the pipe as the pipe starts to sag, then wedging middle wedges in to get the final shape from both ends. i will be welding the back ends up with a piece and the front end will need some pie cuts before welding.
do you think a square form could be pushed into the hot pipe to form a square pvc tube? i want to make a rectangle tube from 4" pvc drain pipe (the 1/8" kind). i may have to reheat a few times. i,m concerned that the whole piece may compress trying to push the form into the hot pipe. thanksMike
is it possible to just heat up the plastic to 200c and have it melt to the point it is more like a liquid? thanks
how do you have it connected to the prius. into that little 12v battery?car will not start if that battery is drained.
when grinding on aluminum ,i use grinding wheels for concrete. they do not load up like the others do. i get mine from harbor freight. the cheap ones.
