Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

A propane torch. You just have to go slow or they will bubble up.

Very nice Daron!  With the large variations in Acrylic colors available the possibilities are endless.  If you end up making a lot of these they make electric heating elements specifically for bending acrylic, we use them for signs all the time.  It may save you some propane  Wink

Yea,
We make sinks to test each batch. If there are any flaws, we make bath tubs and stretch it thinner.
Do you work for a sign company?

You are probably one of our Customers. I've been at the same acrylic Factory now for 27 years.

Aiala,
Your Plinth is Leaving Kentucky Tomorrow to Palm Springs. Its 11 Degrees here tonight. You might have to warm it up a tad. Enjoy it!
Mike, I'm not happy with yours and am going to redo it. It was nice and level until I added the 12/0. It is sagging a little on the back end. I haven't made any of these for a while.
3/8" Acrylic can hold up a 12 lb 14/0 without any issues. Besides, I want to make you another for your 9/0 too. The simple bend of the thicker material allows me to fit two in the same box.
Good Luck to you on your hectic week and my Best wishes to Jan. Wink
