Default Vac Forming book

For those who are interested here is the book I referenced in my previous vac forming post but forgot to include the details. This is the best book I have found on the subject for the kind of forming we do, highly recommended.

Do It Yourself Vacuum Forming For The Hobbyist by Douglas E. Walsh

Al, I picked up the book second hand quite a few years back so I don't have a web site or cost. Let me do some surfing and see if I can find it available somewhere. In the meantime here is a web site offering vac formers in the size we modelers would be most interested in. Some good info: http://www.warmplastic.com/

I especially like the idea of a guide to help position the frame before forming. Regards, Chad.

Chad: using 411.com I found that Douglas Walsh is still at the address given in your thread. Have sent a snail mail letter asking if the book is still available and the cost. Will let you know when I hear back from Mr. Walsh. Regards

Thanks a bunch for tracking it down Al. It's a good deal for less than $20 delivered. Regards, Chad.
