A lot of the powsurf manufacturers seem to use this tundra grip now either on its own or adhered over EVA foam for a bit more supple feeling.

Its loctite precision 5g. Everyone is always talking about putting too much superglue into the layup so I had been using the precision nozzle to reduce the amount and then had added a finer tip from a skin tissue glue bottle to give even more control. I have used that tip in many pairs without issue...

thanks vin I normally buy a new bottle before each pair, but didn't this time. I think I will start labelling all consumables when they were bought/opened so I can keep better track of the need to replace stuff. I remember headmonkey's site has a lot of stuff about keeping track of your inventory so...

It gets cold and hot where I am. Probably 28F winter nights and 113F in the summer. Think it was probably not enough glue at each of the glue spots. Stupid mistake.

Thanks Vin I think that it maybe it. The bottle has been in the shed for a year or more I would say. I also use a fine tip on the end to give better control and it felt like not as much glue as usual was flowing through this tip on the day. The bottle felt stiff to compress so low glue is possible. ...

thanks for the replies The base came from Miller studio in Seattle likely off a roll they use for their commercial ski company jobs. It looked clean and I am pretty careful with the surface preparation and cleanliness. The edged bases were spray glue adhered to the cassette after the 20 minute super...

Edge Gaps after Pressing

Hi Everyone Just pressed up a new pair of skis and annoyed to find two sections of the edge eased away from the base material by 0.5mm-1mm over about a 10cm length in each case. Hopefully shouldn't be a deal breaker in terms of function but still a disappointment after never having this happen in th...

Did you build the cores or buy them?
I had a guy on instagram trying to sell me paulownia or paulownia bamboo cores out of china recently.

No problem you just need to re-abrade and flame the rabbeted area of ptex to make sure the bonding works well. If your surface preparation can achieve the same adhesion as factory sanded and flamed ptex then it's fine. I haven't ever tried to abrade and flame untreated ptex but people on here must d...

I don't worry about it, but maybe it would be better if you did. I trust the factory abrasion/flaming more than my ability to reabrade and flame the tip fill after rebating it. The other option is to build up the area between the edges with a thin piece of glass (0.6mm thickness of tangs) or a piece...

Yeah the old slip with the router on the final sidewall pass is a fairly brutal moment to swallow.
