Does Anyone Use Vibration for Resin Casting?

    I know the dentist's office uses a vibration table when they make casts. They pour the cast and set it on a vibrating surface that helps the resin settle into all the small, hard to fill places.

    I thought it might be cool to make a false bottom for the pressure pot that employs a battery operated vibration device (I know what you're thinking :p ) so that the cast fills better and comes out with no surface bubbles.

    Just wanted to hear what people thought.

    I use vibration if a pressure pot is not available.

    Both seem a bit much.

    But it all depends on the parts you are making. More detail requires more care and effort to remain bubble free. Simple parts, not so much.

    Be careful when using vibration to pour up anything. Too much vibration can introduce bubbles into a cast.

    Vibrating a pressure pot seems like overkill.
