Question Looking for Vacuum forming plastic sheets in Edmonton

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi Everyone

Well Iíve decided to take the plunge and attempt to try my hand at vacuum forming canopies. Besides making the appropriate box Iím going to need a healthy supply of plastic sheeting. According to the articles Iíve read on the subject I should be looking for PET-G (not regrind) plastic sheets which apparently come in 4x8 sheets. Not sure about the width 0.30~0.40 ? What I cannot figure out is just where to buy these 4x8 sheets in my city of Edmonton. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

I bought a book on Vaccum forming at a hobby shop. Itis called DO IT YOURSELF by Douglass E Walsh. It will take you through all the steps. Shows the different vaccum boxes you can build . Plus it also describes the different plastics used and what temps are best. Its quite an informative book. I paid $22 for it tom. Works great for me 100% sucess on my first try
