Hi,
As for the last couple of years we are not trading at SMW
BUT this year I will be putting on a resin vacuum casting demonstration in the demo area in hall 3 on both days probably just after 11.00
It will be aimed at entry/hobby level using basic equipment and the most suitable materials with the aim to show that resin casting is fairly simple task and not alchemy (that comes later with mercury free clear resin)
Will be about both days so will be happy to help with any questions.

NOW any LSPrs up to give some demos 2018 !!!


All the best

Bob

Hi Guys,
I could put a picture demo on if you would like, sort off talk you through the process probably a lot better than me live or a video as that would require sub-titles (if you see the interview with Brett Green on Hyperscale a few Telfords ago you will understand)
But I should be able to do that next year as we have a couple of things in the pipeline.

That would be good Bob. As it was, I was so busy at one place or another over the weekend that I had no idea that you were doing a demo. I caught about 3 minutes of John Adams breaking out some vac formed components and that was that! 

Cheers


Simon
