After running 35 feet of #6 copper, wiring in the new outlet and adding the largest breaker in the power box, I'm ready. I now have the power I need to operate the vacuum form. Here we used an oven plug rated at 55 amps. It won't run the whole 2 x 4 but it should handle the a 2 x 2 or 2 x 3.
It will in fact take two different circuits to power both zones of the 2 x 4. Each zone needs about 30 amps.
So, the build is over and now begins the testing and operation.
First test: The goal will be to turn these new sheets of 4 x 8 plastic, a new mold (see Building a MSE-6 Droid) and the vac into an R/C car body.
Two 4' x 8' sheets of plastic + Droid R/C car body mold + Vacuum Form Machine = MSE-6 Mouse Droid?
+ + =
We will see.
