Just ordered one, many thanks for designing and producing this! I take for granted this will work with my HF pot.

First run with mine went great. Assembly was easy, and the shelf is the best part IMO. The laser burning left a bit of a smell and sone residue, but easily taken care of with a quick swab of alcohol.

Glade to hear everyone is enjoying their kit!

@StumpyThump Yes, that's the bad part of this material. Laser cuts easy, but leaves a char and the smell will dissipate after a little while.

A little but of thin CA around the edges will help seal and protect the edges and seal in that char.

Should fit the HF pot no problem. If not let me know and I will see what I can do to make it fit! (maybe send you a bigger hammer!)


If anyone has an unusual size pot, send me your dimensions and I will quote you a price on cutting one.

Got mine a few days ago - it is awesome! Perfect fit for the HF pressure pot. It's a super design, easy to assemble and use, and is so much better than the old "Bear in the Big Blue House" plate that I was using!

Folks I just assembled mine and this is a great unit for the money! Far sturdier than I'd have thought, due to well-chosen hardware. I'd expected simple screws that would tear out if not glued, instead they provide a nifty compression arrangement that really holds. Parts are perfectly cut. The surface is melamine, which resists sticking to resins (recommend spraying the whole thing with mold release prior to use to enhance non-stick properties). The middle shelf is removable, and fits much better than I'd thought - not easy to tip. I can't wait to get out there and start casting again.

Thanks for the great and affordable product.

Thanks for the good Review! And great idea with the Mold release.
If you want to prevent resin from getting into the "Pressure Pot Caddy" etching, just turn the shelf upside down. :)

Good idea - I hear the voice of experience in it. Lol. What's really needed is a heated unit as casting at 8000 feet in the Colorado Rockies gets pretty sketchy in winter. Most blocks get a little help in a toaster oven....

Interesting....
Could you set the PP on a electric element to warm it, or maybe a 5 gallon pale warmer? Or would it be better to warm the mold itself?
