Since you're in to building more than one, you might want to take a look at this option. Might eliminate the need for a lot of the ballast. Not sure how much to extend the nose but one build should...

Best thing I've found for a plug is Durhams Rock Hard Water Putty if you're pouring a plug from an existing part. Sands and machines well. Should be vibrated a bit to deaerate it to get rid of the...

Joe,

The lower the temp the better, within reason. Just so long as it eventually sags for you. That'll be more even heat across the sheet.....

Joe,

One more thought....don't turn your oven up because of the thicker plastic. Keep the same working temp you had on the last pour. You want the plastic to heat evenly and not get hot/cold...

Joe,

Everything should be about the same. Temp the same, be quick from the oven to the form and adequate vacuum. It most likely will take a bit longer in the oven to adequately sag but the rest...

Joe,

Most set their kitchen ovens at 350-400 degrees. I doubt that's the problem you're running into. The real gauge is how much sag you get in the sheet. 1-1/2" to 2" sag is probably adequate...

Make sure the holes you put in the recessed areas are not too big, only need them large enough to assure vacuum is maintained in those areas. If you make them too big, the sheet can blow...
