Re: profiling cores

I think people have had luck with the helical style planer blades rather than straight blades.
They are much more expensive but worth it in the long run.
An overhead sander is more ideal.
Make the core longer than need to account for snipe.
Hot glue.
Spacer at the ends.
U can do it!

Thanks for the post.

What's your total weight?
I found the innegra/carbon weave to be both bulky and a resin sponge in wet layup.
I'm also concerned that the innegra is a polypropylene and is one of the most difficult materials to laminate.

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...

I cut at almost the exact same speed and for more complicated and smaller die cuts.

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.
