I just ran across this site while looking for info for another thread.

TAP Plastics

There is so much potential here for prop building that I wanted to share the info.

They have tons of great how-to videos, as well. They post on their website in both Windows Media and Apple QuickTime, as well as on YouTube.

Here's some examples—

How to build a Mold Box

How to cut Plastic Sheet

How to bend Plastic

Cast embedments in Clear Resin

How to use Expanding Foam


Cool stuff.

You won't metal shops recycle, even the chips from cutting add up so fast they collect and send them to metal recycling.
