Re: [BKARTS] affordable large vat



When I want to make large sheets I use a plywood box that is held together
with corner brackets.  I set it on a larger sheet of plywood or plexi or
whatever flat surface is larger than the box and line it with heavy plastic
sheeting from the hardware store.  Works great.  To empty it you can scoop
water/pulp out with a bucket or pull one corner of the plastic down and let
it drain out.  Very low-tech and cheap but very functional.   Claudia
