Photon Accessories (Covers, UV light sources, Resins etc...)

Since several people are getting Photons, I thought I would start a new thread where people could post links to accessories (covers, UV light source, resins etc...) to use with the Photon.

I know some one asked about a cover.  I have this one and it fits the Photon well.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073YDN9V7/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I also got these for doing the alcohol bathing.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0714BLTJS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1  You can leave the alcohol in them with no smell.

Here is the posted FEP film link. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CTT6JNR/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and the UV light source.  https://www.amazon.com/MelodySusie-36W-UV-Nail-Dryer/dp/B00NPW16QW/ref=sr_1_6_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1543625199&sr=1-6&keywords=melody%2Bsusie%2Bgel%2Blamp&th=1

Not a big item, but I bought a few plastic paint scrapers at Home Depot for less than $1 each. They have an angled edge that pops the raft right off the plate.

Check the item page.  At the moment there are identical versions, one in black, one in white.  The white is $3 cheaper.

@haasmarc  Did you get one or two?  The description says pack of two but when I ordered it I only got one.

Funny you should ask.  When I ordered them originally, I got one.  I contacted Amazon and they credited me and told me to just order again, which I did.  In the second order, I got two as advertised.  I thought it was just a simple mistake but maybe somebody needs retraining.  :P :facepalm:

Did anybody try magnet sheet for window covers?  The type that's rubbery and made for cutting out kitchen magnet type stuff.  I suspect it would work for window covers, being weak enough to handle, easy on the finish, but also dark as could be. :)

Where is a good place to get some large enough for the printers??? I have a cover that the wife made, but it is somewhat cumbersome at times.

  Thanks

I'm counting on them being at any craft store, office supply, or even Walmart.  They come in 8 1/2" x 11".  At least I think they do and that's what I'm counting on. :)  They're big enough to cover any one of the windows.  Might get a couple out of one sheet but i'm guessing they come in a pack of at least a few.

Be sure to use your 40% off coupon.  And if they say this is a new "Every Day Saver" aka, made up reason to decline their own coupon, well they happily accept all competitor coupons.  So just show them the 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby instead.   ;)

I bought mine at Menards, but any place should have them. Mine where with the heater vents as a way to block them off. Less than $5.

Amazon probably got tired of doing refunds when they just sent one instead of two.   :facepalm:
