I personally think doing this both ways several times the tilt router laminate trimmer is the way to go. You can start with low angle and do a couple passes while increasing the angle. Its much more finesse but easier IMO. Yes flat to base is key otherwise gets chunky. Spend $60-$100 or more its wor...

Sean is an awesome guy and incredibly helpful. I use his custom macro spreadsheet because i have a shopbot to impart the cornering functions. I had to use a different offset for my d1 than what was specified. As he says its machine specific. Tool path direction helps allot with laying the blade down...

LJ i would try it but the blade drift like that might be too much. I have found the tune shop(and all production skis) to prefer a slight flat/straight section of sidewall directly above the edge for proper edge tuning. This is achieved with the pattern bit router bearing riding just above and on th...

Whatever you are describing here is completely unnessecary.
If you are worried about the mdf burning or your heat blankets shorting you have larger problems than glass or plastic can mitigate IMO.

If glue gets too cold like freezing it goes bad as well.
I don't know if that's an issue where you are down under.
I forget who it was on here maybe twizz used very little glue one time and got magnatraction sorta.

Ive seen way worse on many large production models.
Line, rossi etc.
I bet it will grind out to be barely noticable.
Ive never had this issue myself but the superglue did not bond for some reason.

Email the jigarex guy or the binding freedom guy, i think that is johndrums on tgr. Or buy a jigarex jig for 45 bucks. Between the 2 of them someone should give you the answer based on the measurements you have provided here. Or go to a shop with a jig and pay them to drill an old ski and make a rub...

Sorry to say but photobucket has blown goats for a long time. Crap links and interface, slow connection and just lame. I prolly had some stuff there but there are plenty of free fast, linkable sites or there used to be. I seem to have lost the ability to link images inline in post on this site. Perh...

I was told the sil carbide are too aggresive and have to be broken down too much and then they dont work very well. Great for the rapid flash machines but for base its ceramic (green) or nothing. Told to me by a 22 year shop manager. I have used al ox, zirc, and ceramic. The ceramic def provide the ...
