The material you are going to use 2117 is not suitable for UV printing. If you will look at information mentioned on manufacturer web site, there are denoted methods that are suitable for your plastic. Also the material that Mr. Chrismp use 8210 comes in different variations that could be suitable f...

The first thing is that it is not pressure box. It is vacuum. All that can happen is that this box will compress inside. The second thing is that it is already tested. Yes, there are some sounds, but they appear only, because 2.5 mm metal sheet in between steel ribs deforms. It is much safer than pr...

Just built a vacuum chamber for vacuuming urethane with board. I was impressed with pressure box and thought that it will be nice alternative.

I really like these for cutting flash - best I've found. The zero kerf lets me cut flush to edges without damaging them, and they seem to last longer than others by far. You can get them at Home Depot even cheaper than Amazon - I think about 12 bucks for 5. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000J1CSWI/?col...

I got the 3 inch diam by 3 inch length drum sander from lee valley tools I think or one of the other USA woodworking stores. I don't have the bearng support bit but it would be nice because I definitely get a bit of deflection on the drum (it doesn't really matter because I bevel the sidewall anywa...

I really like the oscillating belt and spindle sander made by Ridgid tools. The oscillating helps the belt or spindle wear more evenly. By using the belt along the edge it prevents putting too much pressure on any one area and helps give a smooth edge along the entire length. No subtle nicks from a...

Hi, Falls. By the by, do you use carbide blades or blades for metal?

Is that base graphic sublimated? Looks really sharp! Yes, this is sublimation. Basically it very depend on the graphic you make and color of inks. Some colors look more straight than the other. Thin lines (less than 2 mm) are the biggest problem. Here are some pics of very small objects. https://th...

Thanks, Tom. The sublimation was performed on the rough treated side. The pic you see is glide contact side.

Cutting out flesh on tip/tail with no edge

Hello everyone, if there any guys doing powder boards or skis with no edges on the tip and tail? I tried to make a few snowboards with small fish tail but was not sure about making tail with no edges after effective zone. I am not sure that it will be possible to follow the curve of the snowboard co...

Recently did a board using 48 g/m2 fiberglass. The result is almost the same. https://s18.postimg.org/4exgv0u3p/IMG_0739.jpg https://s18.postimg.org/7yjekurol/IMG_0740.jpg I don't know? I think reason lays in temperature (plastic gets soft), shrinkage (epoxy) and pressure (may be bigger or smaller)....

U should try a thin glass veil. Like a 2oz plain weave glass. Surfboard shit. I have heard about this method, but thought that it is used in order to hide carbon or kevlar presence on the topsheet. Have you ever got such king of issue? It seems that it is only characteristic of fast epoxies since t...
