Insert supplier in Europe

Hi,

I ran out of inserts and would like to order a load of new ones.
Does anybody know a European supplier for inserts??

Thanks a lot!

Sounds interesting. If I remember it correctly he is using the same bending principle as I am using, so look forward seeing his final product. A while ago I did contact Sean of Donek Tools as he seemed to have difficulties programming the code for the edges to bend. We had a short chat by email, but...

Still under construction. God some great new ideas to further optimize the design, but will finish my new CNC machine including drag knife first :)

I will update you later!

This tool looks great! However, 229 dollar seems way too much in my opinion. This just consist of two small steel parts and two bearings? And of course a lot of R&D from the guys behind it. Looks like a nice new DIY project after my CNC router is completed ;) Anyone got close up images of this tool?...

No slipping issues anymore. This also caused by using the wire bending principle. This method needs less force to feed the edge through.

Just a low quality pic, but better than nothing.
In front you see the bender, in the back a full wrap snowboard edge :)

The CNC edgebender is finally working properly! Did completely redesign the bender and modified the prototype (didn't make it look more pretty ;) ). Then did do a lot of testing to find the bending properties. Did optimize the code of my bending program in Matlab and am now able to bend nice full wr...

Haha, it's not that difficult. The idea was to create a ski that has the following properties: - Additional length in deep powder snow - Short running length on piste - Stiff tail when landing cliff jumps So the idea was to create a 'spoon-like' tail We stopped te wood core before the 'fold' starts....

We also got steel edges on the roll, so not cut. Send me a PM if you are interested or you could place an order at www.bmb-ski.nl

Were this the only variables you changed??

Please let me know, then I will try to run it on my computer.
