I am posting this here as the same basic procedure can be used to make just about anything from Kydex.
If the Mods think it belongs somewhere else please move it.
Every time I post a pic of a new Kydex project I am asked for pics of the process. Well I finally took some. (Ok I took a lot!)
First up my work bench/reloading area.
This is where I do all my kydex work, gun smithing, reloading and weapons maintenance.
This is the press that I made for holsters and such.
The process begins by measuring, scoring and snapping piece of .063" Kydex to the proper size for the project.
Next the Kydex is heated in a toaster oven @350deg for 1-1/2 minutes.
Then wrapped around the form, sandwiched between two pieces of heat resistant foam and clamped in the press.
After allowing 20 minutes or so to cool, the press can be opened and the formed Kydex removed from the form.
