Thank you Dirk, I enjoyed this German TV format very much! Those two funny Germans have exactly the same fascination as me, my brother and our friends had during our teenage time.

I am also convinced this stuff will be loved by our forumfriend Chris who loves setting stuff on fire and blowing things up.

Are you a professional in chemicals? Through the years I am discovering more and more about forummembers, which I enjoy pretty much.

Here is what happened:

The flat polycarbonate became a bowl with the center pushed down and the edges and corners lifting up:

The forces of nature are enourmous since with my both hands it was impossible to bend the 15mm lid at all.
But at 3/4 of the scale meter shown on my vacuumpump, I decided it was enough, before loosing pan or lid or both.

Lets see if it serves its purpose with only 3/4 of its vacuumpower:

The effect is exactly what I hoped for: after pouring silicon in the mould, the vacuum pan removed all air between the pre-mold, the wooden ship parts and the silicon on top of it.

That's a great result! Even if you look with a little respect at the deformations of the tools which are not obviously undersized. This is impressive. I had to smile a little while looking at the photo that shows you taking cover behind the chair. My fantasy showed me in mind briefly the picture of the implosion of the vacuum chamber like a black hole trying to pull the chair in and you hold on to the other side because you don't want to give up your shield ... :lol:

Dear Mr C.

You are undoubtably a genius and in years gone by would have been looked upon with suspicion as your activities would be seen as witchcraft!

Fantastic stuff.

Thank you for your pyromaniac comment, I have something in progress as we speak.

That barge for Aspern is still in my plans.

Do not kill yourself or your lovely wife.

Best wishes,

Chris

Torsten you make it very difficult for me NOT to try this out in my studio :mrgreen:
And I have to keep myself from making an artificial image of myself as a small person inside the vacuum pan :shock:

Chris have you actually watched that German TV show presented to us by Dirk? There must be a British equivalent, apart from Myth Busters which is also to be seen at Dutch TV.

Reinforcing the vulnerable parts of the cast with loads of steel rods and copper wire clips:

Sind da auch noch kleine Hölzchen aus dem Geschäft in Aachen dabei?
Wolle here I use the 0,5mm and 0,3mm steel rod I bought with you in that German shop, which is in fact the best steel rod/wire I have found until now because it is strong, straight and extremely thin. German quality.

DIRECTING THE PRESSURE ON THE GIANT MOLD

Two planks and two clamps to devide and direct the pressure to prevent the cast from flash:

With the clamps centered:

There is too much flash on both sides:

Inspirational stuff Mr C.

I watched those two nutters on U tube.

Completely bonkers.

Reminded me of my misspent youth with aerosols on fires. Fireworks in models etc.

Best wishes,

Chris
