Hello, finally I'm coming to an end with the REDacro. The plane is almost finished, covered and waiting for final painting. I still miss the canopy, or better said, I miss a way to build it. I need a bigger vacuum forming machine than the one I have. Problems are: the sheet frame does no more go into my oven, so I need a heating solution. I found a heating wire, but am no sure how safe it is to work with it. This will be a 220V, open system. How to hold the wire? I could build some ceramic holders, with mould ceramic. How to connect it, but this is a minor problem. Can I connect it directly to main or better to preview some safety, considering electrical system has its own already? Main is limited to 2200W, which should handle the vacuum pump too. and now we come to vacuum pump. A vacuum cleaner is no more enough, but I guess a solution like that one should work. Experiences, ideas, suggestions? An alternative could be build it with composite, but every builder knows the feeling: a challenge is a challenge! Best regards, Ric
