My first home made vacuum forming machine. I am using a cheap DIY quality heat gun in a plywood box as a heat source. The inside of the box is lined with aluminium foil to help create more even heat. In the video I heat the edges of the acrylic with a blowtorch. This is probably entirely unnecessary. I am using a festool CT26 shop vac for power, but this is probably overkill as well. Take care when using blowtorches inside. I had the doors open and several fans running to circulate clean air.
