MACHINE PRESS PROTOTYPE BUILT FROM COMPOSITE DOOR OFF CUTS FOR MAKING EXPERIMENTAL DIY SIPS PANELS

As it's not practical to ship expanded foam as it taks up more volume, and the supply of composite door panels off cuts is limited, I decided to combine the 2 & make a protoype machine using a frame & silver foil.

A similar, previous experiment with  expanding foam , Frame & grp sheet / window is HERE ( Mk 1 & 2 DIY SIPS Framed Panel with GRP Skin & Built in Window )

This was the cheapest way i could think of for making a basic panel. TO protect the oustside of the panel from the wind / rain. a metal or grp sheet can be attached or glued with foam from the start.

If a green house wall  type shelter is required for growing veg, a wider frame can be used & shelves attached to hold plant pots. a grp sheet with removable fixing can then ba attached to the outside

Basic fisrt attempt at a prototype Diy Sips (structual insulated panel) machine. It's using grp skin foam core  composite door off cuts as hinged holding panels

Chat with the Reciproboo Inventor & Idea For Ladder Adaption

Last summer, I had a chat with Shaun Halbert, inventor of the Reciproboo structure frame, a beautifully simple concept.

Shaun was very helpful with an overview of the sector & some comments on my project.

I hav an idea fopr making a ladder to escape a flood etc, by adding a few  rungs. I also expreimented with different angles (see pics)

This was a rough idea, & not developed further, due to time constraints, but I love the design
