Hey man, maybe Im not looking at it right but that press seems to have almost no support in the direction you need it, and those non penetrating welds scare the shit out of me!
Stand behind a solid door when you fire that thing up lol.

Haha one day you will look back and laugh. The urge to press a board is strong but each step requires respect. You are far better off pulling those off and having another go, gain more experience and get a better board in the end. In fact forget pressing for lets say a week. Bend those edges, then s...

Your bending skills are up to shit haha, no offense ;) and it will get better with time.
A super accurate bend is critical to getting a super tight fit, its all practice. Also keep your superglue usage down to a small dot every 50-100mm, using too much.is asking for delamination.

What a waste of time and materials not to mention it left a heap of swarf on the under side of the cut which had to be removed. I now series of templates and cut by hand with razor blades.

I get consistently beautiful camber with and without veneer, so I would not assume that is your problem. I use sicomin epoxy and heat to 100°c/bottom 80°c/top for 10 mins, the whole process takes 25 mins. I pull it 30 mins later and cool it on its side. Personally I think the short sharp heat cycle ...

Why can't they get you that? it's an "off the shelf" stamping for them.
I changed my base thickness to 1.4mm which gave me more options over the 1.2mm.
I ended up with P129 C01C

So after basically quoting part numbers from their catalogue I get this response. I give up with the chinese branch of cdw lol. I will email the US branch. We provide material, not products.
