Re: [BKARTS] affordable large vat



I'm not a papermaker, but I've often used the galvanized "drop pans" available from farm/seed/feed stores for marbling. They come in various sizes, are 3-4 inches deep, and are relatively inexpensive. They're used to catch litter under rabbit and other kinds of animal cages.

Dr. Hort in the newspaper today published a letter from somebody who made
planters out of galvanized stock watering tanks (available at farm supply
stores).  They are said to be very sturdy, and not expensive.  They would
work well for paper-making too, I expect.

I use large black plastic tubs that are used i think for mixing
concrete. check
at lowes or home depotthey are relatively inexpensive under 20 dollars.
i teach
himalayan papermaking and float my molds in them. work great. i am planning
on
drilling holes in the upper edge and bolting two together packing my molds
and
folding sawhorses and using the two tubs as a shipping container when
teaching
out on the road. j



Quoting Julie Jones <jjones@xxxxxxxxxx>:


Hello all,
I am hoping someone can suggest a low-cost sturdy vat or tub that can be
used to make 22"x30" sheets of paper. I am hoping for minimum dimensions
of
30"x38"x8".
Thank you,
JUlie Jones
