Acrylic pots???
« on: May 12, 2022, 12:58:42 AM »
I see a lot of guys building calls using acrylic pots and was wondering if they buy acrylic sheets or do they pour their own acrylic in a mold?   I’ve done a little bit of searching and finding black acrylic in a 3/4” or 1” thick sheet is proving difficult.  Just curious as to how they get the material to use?

Guys I know, cast their own blanks.  Typically with a piece of wood, calling it a hybrid.  But some do a solid resin cast.  There is companies out there that make and sell blanks.  Maybe someone call elaborate on it more since I don't use resin, therefore have no need to buy it.  Can't stand the spider web mess that comes off the blank when turning.  I also don't think they sound as good as a wood pot.  But everyone has their own opinions.

Thanks.   I’ll ask in the pot call forum and see if any of the call makers will respond.
