> Subject: Keeping PCA platform clean...
> Importance: High
> Dear rp-ml:
> Has anybody figured out a novel way to keep the rotating reflective
> sheet metal platform clean in the PCA's? It looks like you can easily
> scratch and mar the surface if you try to scrape resin off of it and
> we'd like to keep it polished and clean to aid in curing our parts.
> We are looking at using 1/8 in. thick tempered glass and laying it on
> the platform - the glass would be easy to clean and it still permits
> the reflection of UV from the polished base. The glass will weigh
> about 14 lbs and I'm wondering how well it will rotate with this extra
> weight on the platform. Any additional thoughts or ideas?
