    Hi All!

    Making a vac-forming table, what is a good wattage to do a decent vac formation, I don't want something too strong that damages the original piece or the other way is too weak and makes a bad form. Got a Dyson with 220 Air Wattage.

    I think that depends on a bunch of things.
    The size of your tabel.
    The material thickness.
    The complexity of your piece.

    I did some test with my normal vacuum.
    But my setup is fairly small.

    just my 2 cent though...

    Hoping to work with 1.5-3mm styrene or perspex and the table I am looking at making is only going 900mm-600mm (to begin with), complexity is simple (helmets)
