frankippolito Ripping around on my Universal Laser.
I'm doing this cut in a few passes because the plastic (I'm guessing it's styrene) is pretty melty when I do it in one pass.

  •   legendaryworkshop Also lasers arent that scary. They wont explode or burn your shop down :) im more scared of my table saw and lathe! :) 5d
  •   legendaryworkshop But on your note, you're absolutely right I would never buy a harbor freight table saw or attempt to build my own! Yikes :) 5d
  •   frankippolito @legendaryworkshop universal is all made in the US. When I got mine, I went out to Arizona for training, and they took me in the rooms where they make the laser and calibrate them. It's not a glass tube like the Chinese ones. It's not JUST software and support. 5d
  •   legendaryworkshop Nice. It does sound like a great company. 5d

  •   agentbrown1 I like them shiny and chrome 2w
  •   dysaniaprops @volpinprops Yeah I got it for details and such. So far It has given excellent results, however haven't tried fine urethane paints since Im afraid of blocking that tiny nozzle. I've gotta try those House of Kolor paints, I loved the results you got with the fishbones shading. 2w

frankippolito Finally molded the forehead for the Peter Cushing (Tarkin) makeup last week. Core is smoothcast 380, chavant NSP medium clay for the sculpture. Finished mold is epoxacote surface coat, epoxamite 102 laminating resin, and freeform habitat for some dough in between the layers of 10oz plain weave cloth. I put 4 little balls of dough on the face, so that when it's turned over, it sits flat. 2w
  •   missmonstermel Thank you for listing your mold materials- been wanting to try something better for my molds! 2w
  •   frankippolito @missmonstermel bring your stuff here, let's mold it at my shop! 2w
  •   perello23 Looks nice!!! 2w
  •   luis_craik Hi @frankippolito, what kind of resin will you use for a shoe sole? I can't have/make the real material used on shoes, is there an alternative? I want to make the soles like those new lightweight soft and durable Nike running shoes. Any thoughts? Thank you! 5d

  •   hellin3d @frankippolito hi Frank, juat wanted to ask what your mold is made out of, I use fibreglass, mine are a lot thinner which I guess means the wouldn't be strong as these ones you're crew are making. Thanks 3w
