Hey guys, blimey, i really haven't done a lot here, have i?  but still, anyone know any ways of making a time rotor casing? i mean, i could get a clear, perspex, one piece tube, but that would set me back nearly £500... and i could use acetate, but i'm not sure who one would go about that.
any help would be much appreciated.
Sad really, isn't it? People spend all their time making nice things, and other people come along and break them.~The 2nd Doctor

You can get a think, bendable perspex, wrap it around a buck of the diameter you want, and then fasten it together, either with chemical epoxy or small screws.

where does one go about getting flexible perspex... i can only find stiff cast acrylics  :-\

For your rotor, what is the required height, outer diameter, and wall thickness?
