creating even lengths without measuring Drew a quick sketch of the part I'm cutting and how to measure it out evenly. [/URL] ^^This part needs to be three times the thickness of this saw blade. ^^Line er up with the first pencil mark and make a second line. ^^As you can see, the draft was a bit off. The part is now squared off. Curving styrene plastic ^^Using the piece I cut earlier, I prepare to give it a curve by finding a tube shaped item (dolly) that resembles the amount of bend I'll need, ^^I tape the styrene piece to the rounded object and grab my heat gun. ^^Apply the heat evenly from side to side. Do not overheat the plastic or it will stretch. (You'll see it turning brown if it's too hot) ^^you'll notice the project piece begin to warp slightly. This is what you're looking for. ^^Using a rag or cloth, you'll need to manually roll the styrene over the dolly. ^^ As you can see, the part is not perfect.......yet. ^^Remove the project from the dolly.................... ^^.......use your heat gun to warm the edges of the plastic again, The use your rag or cloth to "iron out" any warps by using a slight amount of finger pressure and run evenly across the entire edge. ^^once complete, it'll be near perfect so we take it to the next stage. ^^Using the same tube that the piece was bent around, wrap a piece of sandpaper of your choice around it. ^^Sand the full length of the project and move around a lot. You don't want to dig any grooves into the piece. ^^Finish the piece with 320 and it's off to primer.
