    I'm starting my first vacuum forming machine and can't find a good heating element. I've checked walmart and target and neither have anything that looks like it's going to work. Any suggestions for what I should use?

    try the bay and purchase a roll of nichrome wire. go to lowes or home depot and buy a dimmer switch and make a control.
