Sprout Lamp Vacuformer

Home made low pressure vacuform being used to create a lens prototype. The lens design was larger than our shop vacuform or any other unit I could locate outside of a professional manufacturer. This machine was never fully successful in producing a quality lens but came close and was very educational. In practice the system operated more like a drape former with a vacuum assist than a vacuformer.
