Where do you buy replacement honeycomb?
I found mine on ebay
CloudRay states they can make them in custom sizes if they don’t have one that “fits” your needs.
“If needed, these aluminum honeycomb core sheets can easily be resized by the buyer to smaller sizes using a straight edge and sharp knife.”
Doesn’t that sound relatively delicate compared to steel and thus much easier to deform?
The steel honeycomb is much better material because you can use magnets to hold items down flat
It also claims to be only 1/4" thick with a .0026" foil thickness.
The (steel) honeycomb that came with my Red&Black is about 3/4" thick with a foil thickness greater than .008".
That aluminum one sounds VERY delicate to me.
The seller has all sorts of sizes and variations.
100% agree. I miss my steel honeycomb from my former machine for that reason! I will say though, for my 900 x 600 honeycomb bed, I appreciate the lighter weight aluminum. But I would take the heavier steel any day for the ability to use magnets on it.
Agree! Magnets are a big help to stabilize material on bed
I had the exact same. Started with a aluminum bed and then bought a new one which was steel, which I did not know. At first I was not happy with it because of the weight, but I must say the ability to use magnets is such a game changer. I never want to go back to aluminum again
Great replies everyone. Thank you!
