    First off, I suggest not using a laptop. They're just not robust enough for a shop environment. Second, the computer requirements for your PRS are really quite modest. Go on eBay and find a computer...

    Using PVA as a mask

    I've been using PVA (Poly Vinyl Alcohol) as a release agent for mold making and it dawned on me that this stuff might make for a good spray on mask. PVA is a liquid that when dry, turns into a...

    Here's what I am making:

    33479
