Roll it on. You can get a light coating without the mess and material you need with scraping

Re: WRONG 2017

If its very lightweight (30-50 grams) you can use it as a bonding layer. Otherwise you can use it for boats, speaker enclosures, itch your skin,.... ;)

Re: Setback sidecut

I do multi radi sidecuts on most on my boards. I like it a lot. Waist position is also no big deal (now), the board here was a good learning source when i started some years ago. Im just curious about this sidecut setback thing, since some ski seems to have that feature. But till now i didnt find a ...

Re: Setback sidecut

Yeah i had always the same thinking. But if you look at the Salomon QST and maybe also the Dupraz they do it. There must be a reason ;) Hmmm...


Did you do a symmetrical or asymmetrical (multi radius) sidecut on your pairs?

Setback sidecut

How is your experience on Sidecut setback? I did see some skis with setback around 10cm behind binding center, seems awkward to me but maybe you get a more surfy feel?

Re: Ghetto Tips & Tricks

Lol. Not bad. Still try to figure out how it works. The wheel puzzles me :)

P.S. use the great new upload function for pics! Much better then photobucket (which complains about my ad blocker)

Re: From the steep slopes of Ohio....

I dont use any masking for the base. With pneumatic press its only a little epoxy close to the edges, grinds easily off.

For Topsheet you can use a masking foil, like products from Orafoil

Re: profiling cores

Yes, start with manual jig and later do the jump to cnc.

A big table saw and planer are nice, but just needed to do your own (raw) cores. And for that matter you can use the machines at a (friends) workshop. Much more cheaper then to spend $$$ on these machines. Money is better invested into a cnc

Re: Happy Monkey's process

Thanks for reply! Didnt see that you updated the monkey site too. Great!!! Did you try that with ash or similar hardwood too? I do ask because we go a quite conservative route with cuts around 2mm deep for profiling (mainly ash - chrismp could answer that he did the postprocessor setup). But our fee...

Re: profiling cores

Thats the problem i learned several years ago. Tried to use a big Felder too, not usable. The problem is the pressure rollers are too far apart from the cutter roller, so as you say it lifts the core. I dded up 3 boards before i found out the problem ;) Its a great machine, i love to use it for maki...
