So I did a lot of research on a lot of vacuum formers and I came across this one great price for pump and frame, so I went and ordered it and I shipped out fast with no problem. Once I got it the directions and product is super user friendly would recommend this to anyone. Also they are fast friendly and professional I would recommend them and will be shopping with them for my needs from now on.

So far so good. Product is well built. Assembly instructions need to be a little more detailed. I’ve only made 2 holsters so far and I’m going to need some practice. Time will tell. -Chad, Fearless Custom Holsters

Q: I am looking for a vacuum former to make scale airplanes models, would this machine work for me? How does this machine heat up the material to be formed?

A: Our vacuum presses do not have built in heaters. You have to heat your material externally and then transfer it to the press to be molded. There are many different ways to heat materials depending on the type and thickness. Heat press, flash dryer, oven, toaster oven, etc.

Q: My HD Press won't hold vacuum when I close the valve. How can I troubleshoot and fix this?

A: Check the membrane for dirt and clean it with a damp sponge. A dirty membrane can effect the seal. Check for holes in your silicone membrane. If you have formed anything with sharp edges that were not properly covered the silicone membrane can be punctured. Take the heat sink off the press, wet your thumb and place it over the port and pull a vacuum. This will narrow down where the leak is. If the vacuum holds with your thumb over the port, then you can rule out the plumbing. If it doesn't, then the leak will be somewhere between the port and your pump. Check all the plumbing connections to make sure they are securely seating in the fitting. If you can't find the source after this, please contact us for help.


Q: How much vacuum is required to form kydex? 

A: Most of the time all you will need for Kydex to form for knife shealths and gun holsters is around 27inHG.


Q: Will this work for leather holster forming?

A: Yes. Many of our users are doing leather holster forming with the HD Press.
