Re: hydraulic ski press

The price is ok (ca 5'400EUR/6'000USD plus VAT and shipping) and the seller might accept offers (if it's still available), as it has been on the web for quite a while. But I would probably be somewhat concerned about...

Re: The pouring urethane sidewall thread

For comparison, Erapol CC60D is rated with 4500mPas (like Honey or Syrup?), Smooth-Cast 305 with 80mPas (like Olive oil). You have the experience t...

hydraulic ski press

Hi,
I found the pictures below of a press up for sale. I post it since it is quite different to what you see normally, in terms of hydraulic cylinders position (vertical vs horizontal w/ linkage)

Re: The pouring urethane sidewall thread

For completeness sake, I just wanted to add my results, since I use a product not mentioned before. I used Xencast PX90 (90 Shore A hardness), distributed through www.easycomposites.co.uk. I sealed the channel with one layer of epoxy resin, however tests with an untreated test channel on the same co...

Re: height at the base in the sidecut of the template.

Hi,

In general, you will get the best results if you use Google for your search and add 'site:skibuilders.com' to the search term e.g. 'camber site:skibuilders.com'

I'm more impressed by the Goliath CNC project (google it, I'm not allowed to post URLs ), that's what I want under the christmas tree.

It's still under development ('we are working on the industrialization and we estimate to restart pre sales in the second half of 2019')

Hi,

I'm in the process of building a pneumatic press (for the first time), so I'll most probably need some advice from you guys soon on various topics.

Glad to see that still some experts are around, I was about to get worried ;)
