I wanted to go ahead and thank Curtis for the outstanding craftsmanship he sent me this week. I ended up opting for the new cylindrical chamber and could not be happier. Everything is working as stated, and this product is insanely durable. My first run this evening seems to be doing well. I allowed my blanks to sit in my oven at around 175-200F for 30 hours prior to placing in ziplock bags and then in a tupperware to cool off. After cool, I popped them in, poured Cactus Juice on top, and away we went. My only issue was the bubbling never ceased. I had the usual bubbles that I see in videos, and then 3-4 hours of light bubbles. Not enough bubbles to foam, but bubbles none the less. 4.5 hours under -29# of vacuum. After reading here on the site, if the blanks had any sort of moisture I can expect the longer vacuum. After no change I am going to allow them to sit over night and soak.
Regardless, these issues are ME related that I am sure I can work out.
Overall, I am totally satisfied with my purchase, and after tomorrows results, I am sure I will be ordering Cactus Juice by the gallon. Thanks for the hard work Curtis.
