    Question Where to get Burlwood,Titanium, ABS sheet?

    Hi everyone, I need to vacuum form some parts in ABS with the Burlwood and titanium finishes. I have looked high and low for sheets of ABS with these finishes with out luck. I have seen just about any product you can imagine made from it but can't find a supplier. Does anyone have any info that could help?

    Thanks
    Dar

    Looking for a bit of help here too. I have seen some people hot glue a screen in place. I was looking for a better option.

    Here is the screen in the bezel.

    Would the plastic weld work for adding mounting tabs to the bezel? I hope to do that so I can take it out for replacement if I want and not have to buy another expensive bezel and risk the melting of hot glue on a hot day.

    Thanks for the help and advice as always.

    Thanks. I'll fab some tabs and give it a shot. Thanks for the help. Sounds like I want to sand where I am connecting the tabs too. I'll try to post back what happens.

    I just wasnt really excited about hot glue. Hopefully this works well.

Play with the mixture until it comes out to your desired consistency. Make it in a squirt bottle, use it just like epoxy or whatever. This way, the entire work piece is made of ABS plastic so you shouldn't have problems with thermal expansion leading to cracks or separation like you can have with other materials.
    Is there something I'm missing here? I took a 1/2 tablespoon of tiny abs shavings and placed them in a ceramic cup, poured in about tablespoon of acetone and played with it for about 1/2 hour... they were just as hard as when I put them in, couldn't do anything with them... Am I just using the wrong plastic/abs?

    Cheers...

    Just to throw my 2 cents in here, I picked up Loctite for PLASTIC @ Loews and it worked great for securing plastic on plastic. Its one of those syringe type applicators where you must mix the two together. Loctite PLASTIC =
