Hehe, acetone smells like nail varnish remover, thus no neighbor would suspect me doing something.
But you are right, if I would build a cannon this would definately freak out my neighbors.
Even though I live a bit more countryside with a forest beyond the backyard.
Well, I went to the DIY shop yesterday and bought some parts. I didn't find nice ABS platic plates thus I sacrificed one of these cheaps cases.
The saw is not perfect or at least the blades and my experience are not perfect.
I had more accurate cutting edges when using a sharp knife. But at all I am very positive suprised by the acetone. The plastic disperses and one can use it as glue. After drying the splices seem to be very strong. I have to get more experience and practice to achieve better and cleaner results. Maybe I will buy another two of these cases to have enough stuff I can use for modding.
The hot air works to mold the plastic. But it is difficult to get a smooth form. The first photo shows a a skrew-barrel on a plate. The plate has been molded from a right angle.
