    Are you struggling to close it securely because it takes to much effort to turn the knobs? What if you were to remove those bolts with the knob on top, and replace them with a normal bolt that you could use a socket on and get more leverage.

    That might be a good idea. At the moment, I've just been using clamps to get them extra tight. Since this isn't my pot, I was thinking about just rigging up some sort of cheater bar.

    replacing those bolts is less than $1, and can easily be swapped back to the current setup when returning the pot(although if it works better, Im sure they would say thanks for the mod). The socket wrench would be the easiest, and safest cheater bar.

    Any pressure chamber is a bomb. Good on you for being cautious! Lots of people don’t think about anything and we read about them online.

    I do the same thing with the same pot. Get some O-ring lubricant and apply liberally. The biggest mistake people make it when the o-ring falls off they put it back on upside down.

    Oh, good to know! I'll actually let my boss know too, I'm sure he would enjoy that nugget of knowledge.

    What do you make, if you don't mind me asking?

    Mostly just small things with my leftover epoxy from a table I have been working on.

    It has been too hot this summer to do much (like finish the table) but it is finally going to get into the 80s and even the 70s next week so I can get back at it.

    That's super awesome. I never did anything huge like that because the shit is just soooo expensive, but I've been working with resins for years. In middle school I made jewelry, miniatures and things like that, then I wanted to get into making that geode art that got popular a couple of years ago. Now, I make dice. Much more affordable, and pretty fun, lol. I've only completed one set so far, but here's some of what I've got. The pressure pot does an amazing job at removing all the bubbles from my molds.

    Plus use their 20% off coupon, brings it down to $240. Should be good enough for at least a couple pulls.

    Can you stack a 20% coupon? Not sure they’d allow it on that purchase.

    Can't stack the 20% on top. However 20% off the original 350 puts you at 280. So, use the 20% to save over the reduced price coupon.

    I'm honestly amazed the 20% off works for the Badlands line. Double checked the fine print and it's not on there, huh. They usually exclude their "premium" brands. That's awesome, color me surprised :thumbsup:

    I called the store nearest me and they said they would allow the 20% on top. So I'll be picking one up tomorrow for $240.
