Polystyrene for vacuum forming?

Hey all! My buddy and I are gonna start building a vacuum former here in the next couple of days and I was wondering what sort of places sell polystyrene sheets for not-ridiculously-expensive.

Does anybody have any tips or links or sagely advice?

Thanks!

well, i recommend not using polystrene. thats pretty much styorfoam or insulation in houses which you can get 2x8 sheets of i think at home depot for about 12 bucks.

but styrene aka hips is what you want and would be easiest to use for vacuum forming

i live near a tap plastics that sells a junk ton of everything. depending on how big youre building a table you can use the for sale signs at home depot.

if you have a "fast signs" or other sign making business nearby they have cut offs and may even sell plastic

hope this helps!
