hey everyone! I am new to the site and have been reading that some of ya have been trying to stabilize wood with not much luck finding the right resin, I have been stabilizing for over 5 years and have the ability to supply resin and vacumme chambers for the do it at home guys, the resin i use is a heat cure resin and its the same resin as all the big guys use, I buy it in large amounts and can pass the savings on to you all if you are interestad, I will also do custom stabilizing if needed.

Thanks
Jon

Andy, Im new to this site so im still trying to navigate around on it! the method i use is all under 28.5” of vacume, with the smallpen blanks you are doing the stabilizing process shoulg go pretty fast in round chambers, this resin is a heat cure resin and works great with vacume! you need to be pulling at least 28” vac, the round chambers i have here would work good for the size blanks you do! how many blanks do you do at once? and what size blanks are you stabilizing?

Andy, the resin is 80.00 per gallon U.S plus shipping, you will need as small oven like a table top convection oven to cure blanks after stabilizing if you dont have one already, send me you’re personal email and i will forward resin information to you, email it to me at bones@plainstatesenergy.com

you can do any size pieces you want, the smaller the size the faster it can be stabilized! some of the guys are asking for larger size blanks and then cutting them down and that also works out well, anther thing to remmeber is that the larger chambers cost more money, i would sayto keep them small, 2.5” x 2.5”x 16” work out nice for the larger sizes and you can go smaller if you like.

Looks very nice! I like the blue :bigup: Troy has done a bunch of wood for me its the best and hardest stabilizing I have ever turned! :punk: :punk:

Jon

Why would you have someone else stablizing your stuff for you if you have been doin it for 5 years? There are a number of other too but this is the newest one.

Ok guys here are some new stabilizing chambers you might like! The large 7.50” dia x 20” and 24” tall chambers work great for turkey pot call blanks, bowl blanks and guys that want to do a lot of stabilizing at one time! All chambers will come with, chamber caps, gasket, liquid filled vacuum gauge, bleeder valve, and fittings, these chambers posted are all Dry vac chambers with these chambers i place resin direcly into chambers, no need for plastic tubs! resin can sit in these chambers with out any problems unlike other chambers on the market today, These chambers are also safe to use with DNA
Contact me at bones@plainstatesenergy.com for more info on many other sizes that i have!
