The SG 5150's!

So it took me maybe 8 months. Lots of planning and some tool acquisition and about $800 maybe more. But here is the first pair. They are the SG 5150’s. Named after my beloved golden retriever Scarlet Goldfeathers. She died a little over a year ago. Her dog tag is forever(I hope) embedded in the tops...

Hey I saw this at pm gear. They basically had a key of small sections of aluminum plate outside the baldder/layup area on the movable cassette/mold Then attached to the press was a wood key that the bottom mold key slid into and it was static and held the mold perfect. Does this make sense? Is this ...

pros don't prebend.
I think the only benny you get is ease of layup and reduces teh possiblity of core shift if you don't have that worked out, other than that I think that triax and resin would hold a donky's camber

I don't see your logic. Its more about set time than it is strength and weakness. I figure you think it will be weaker so you want to leave more epoxy in the ski and not sqeeze it out? In a heated press temp and pressure is ramped to achieve the best balance. ( I think) I would test your epoxy and o...
