Step 1 - We need to start with a USPS
Flat Rate Box. This will allow us to
ship anywhere in the US for one flat
rate via Priority Mail which gives us
cross country service in 2-3 days.
There are to different sizes of Flat Rate
Box. I used the Small Box for this
project. Shipping cost for this size box
is currently $9.80.
Step 2 - Cut a large piece of plastic
and cover the inside of the box with
it. Be sure to hug the sides of the
box tightly in preparation to fill it
Step 3 - Select a nice thermos for
the project. I found this Thermos
brand thermos at Wal-mart for
about $15. It is one of the nicer
ones I found. Be sure to choose
one with a wide mouth for fitting
larger sized frags.
Step 4 - Get a few pair of rubber
gloves and use them to cover your
thermos to protect it from the foam
filling while making the mold.
Step 5 - This is the foam that I used
and recommend. I got it at Wal-mart
and it was about $3 per can. It took
2 cans to complete the job. I prefer
this to Great Stuff foam as it can be
used and reused without clogging
the straw. In the past I have used
Great Stuff for other projects and it
was pretty much a one use can even
if there was a bunch left.
Step 6 - Begin to fill the box with
foam. This MUST be done in single
layers. Don't lay it on too thick or it
won't dry properly. Lay a single thin
layer and let it dry before adding
another. Once the bottom layer is
down, add the thermos and slowly
fill around it. This will take about 2-3
days to complete the first half of the
|The finished product.
Pardon the crappy
pics, I am not happy
with the flash and
not happy without it!

questions don't hesitate to contact me. Total cost for this project will be about $20.
Frag trading will never be the same!
