I like your simple press. I see people using 2 inch thick wood with reinforcements for the clamps and going all crazy with theirs but it really doesn't need to be so heavy duty.

Heat gun to a loaded magazine. Nice way to make some pop corn out of ammo !

im curious what type of foam did you use in the form? and where did you get it from?

How many minutes and temperature

I don't clamp my press. I just stand on it. Also, Foil tape works really well for shaping, holding and building.

Wouldn't a VAC bag be quicker, and easier?

Josh the AK MAN check out the egg roll mag design they sell em for 55$ for two but the design seems pretty easy to reverse engineer

That's a snap cap, homie.

Great video, I want to make a double mag holder, now I have an idea. Where can I get the black foam you use to press the kydex? thanks

I don't know how many times I've watched these vid's; but it's quite a bit. I do have one piece of advice for plastic/polymer mags: USE SNAP CAPS! I only say that because the pressure can cause the follower and top section to deform without any support. Recently had an issue with a GSG-522 mag, fortunately I was able to save it.

M&P Mag. That's exactly what I want to try. Thanks for the video!

Do you still make the mag carriers by heating only one side in the oven? I've been trying to heat both sides at once and press it just like a gun, but it seems to never be tight enough unless I switch to .08 from .06 and use a bit of extra heat.

Oh and my next instruction video will be on how to build a killer kydex press on the cheap.

you're putting vids out too fast I'm getting behind..outstanding instruction. with a tripod it would be DVD quality I'd say. I like that table mat...I sould pick one up whats it called?
