Re: Building my First Board, or how to spend +200hours

Das Furnierklebeband is wie eine Briefmarke, machst du nass und klebst auf. Durch die Löcher ist das Furnier gut zu verleimen oder in unserem Fall zu verkleben. Auf der Oberseite brauchst du normalerweise dann kein Klebeband mehr. LG

Furnier von der Unterseite mit Furnierklebeband zusammenkleben, dann klappts auch mit dem Spalt ;)

Re: hydraulic ski press

Looks like a massive build. Good :) With this design you have the advantage of a nice big opening for loading, the huge locking hardware will make it very stiff too. And its a bladder design, so you can use it like most of us here. If the size fits you (and the price) i would take it, very nice made...

Re: Ghetto Tips & Tricks

I just did a giant post about my first build thus far. Most won't read it I expect. During this I needed a router table and didn't have one so I made one out of MDF, wood screws for a fence, and a standard plunge router. Used it to do the rabbet over the edge and VDS. Worked perfectly. Just add a a...

I've seen a few companies (J skis and Folsom skis) who seem to just hold the sidewalls in place and let the layup adhere them to the ski. Any body have experience doing this?
If you work with a mold and if you have profiled sidewalls you can do this approach, otherwise it will be difficult ;)

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?

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

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
