Re: Fugeskis 2019

Those skis look really great. I am working in a similar ski with B-COMP-core as well. Whats your coreprofile?

I made skis with only 4cm ABS in the tail and none in the tip. Lots of linseedoil and you are fine.

Once I have seen a video of a guy hotglueing a longboardcore form woodstrips for vacuuminfusion. There was always a little gap between the strips so that the epoxy could flow in between. Maybe this is the way they do it in the industry? Just a few dots of hotglue, the rest is done by the epoxy?

Hannes 17/18

So I have been busy lately. During the last winter I decided to built a powderski for telemarking. And a friend of mine got really hooked on moguls so we decided to give it a try and make a mogulski. https://abload.de/thumb/p1010597elsd6.jpg https://abload.de/thumb/p1010599v1srl.jpg https://abload.d...

No topsheet, just UV-stable epoxy.
I did two skis without topsheets, made both with SuperSap. It looks pretty nice with the core shining through the glasfibre even though it is not very durable. The second one had veneer just at the tip and the tail.

I am thinking about building an ecoski as well. I made a pair with biax flax and glass which I really liked. I also liked its dampness. But what about a ski with a full flax laminate? Will it be too damp? Earlybird writes about using carbonstrips. Core would be full ash.

I made a pair with flax biax and uni glass. It was a very smooth ride but heavy as mammoth wrote. The pressure of a vacuumsetup ist not high enough to get a good fibre-resin ratio.
Next pair will get glass triax and a thin layer Uni flax. I will take a closer look at the amount of resin I use.

Junction/transition core-tipspacer

As I am planning this years projects I always come up with new questions. Playing with SnoCad made me think of the different options of designing the tipspacers. Straight junction or with interlock, radius or no radius. So far I always worked with a radius as I learned as kid when building rc-planes...

A friend of mine wants a mogulski. Doing some research I found this rather old thread and decided to reopen it. So far length and outline are planned: noselength, narrow, rather big radius. But what about the flex? I read several things that go from medium to stiff or medium front to stiff tail. I k...

And are you guys talking about the tip of the final ski or are you talking about the tip of the flat template?
