Domey to flat???

Postby pask2155 » Tue Sep 11, 2012 11:47 am

Can you make a domey disc flat?

Reason is I got a more domey meteor and like more flat discs... So is there a way to flatten it?

My thought would be to put it on a flat surface, put a board on it, and the weight evenly distributed, is this going to change it or ruin it? Will it work?

Step 1) Locate your PDGA rulebook & open to section 802.01C.
Step 2) Rip that page out, wipe your ass with it, & burn it.
Step 3) Proceed with flattening.

Step 4) Put it on an oven tray and set the oven to low heat(50 degrees Celsius should do).
Step 5) Add the board and little bit of weight on it, let it bake for an hour or two.
Step 6) Take it out, keep the weights on it, season it with salt and pepper and herbs of your choice, let it sit for few days.
Step 7) Remove the weights, enjoy with beverage of your choice.

Set the disc down and pour hot water in it. I've seen that advice given a few times.

To cut it short, yes, but it depends. The easiest way is to lay it on a flat surface, dome down, pour boiling water into the bowl and lay something heavy on top of it to push it down, and let it cool. If you don't put anything on top of it, it can actually dome up more in some cases. However if you have a sufficiently large dome, or the particular plastic blend behaves like that, you won't really get a flat dome, but a ripply, wavy, puddly top. It's much easier to make the plastic expand more than to make it contract. One thing I've been wanting to try is to heat up the flight plate with boiling water, and instantly immerse it in something really cold, like ice water or even liquid nitrogen or something like that. It could possibly shrink more if you cooled it down fast enough.

You used too much weight. =)

Prop the disc around the edges (putting it upside down over a cooking pot is the usual choice), pour some boiling water into the flight plate. As soon as the dome isn't concave anymore rinse with cold water, and put into a freezer to set.
