One thing I'd like to add to my shop is a vibrating table to help reduce trapped bubbles when making molds or casting. There are a few existing models on the market, but they tend to be a bit on the expensive side. There are some nice models used in dentistry, but they are a bit small (usually 6"x8" at the max) and i''d like something more like 12"x24" or a little smaller.
I found this model on eBay, but it's also a bit expensive:
I like the vibration dampers they are using, but I've not been able to find any like them online, aside from shock absorber covers (which could be what they are)
I've also been looking for good variable speed vibrating motors, but have not found the right model just yet.
I figured I would share this here so others can follow my progress, but also so you guys can suggest your own ideas.
I've seen vibrating tables made by bolting a vibrating sander to a piece of plywood, but I'm hoping for something a bit more elegant and adjustable.
What do you think?
