I literally cut a trench in the core blank and inlay the sidewall material, then proceed from there. Here's a pic, and a link to my full core building process. http://www.happymonkeysnowboards.com/MonkeyWiki/index.php?title=Construction_Overview https://storage.googleapis.com/mmm-public/stable-imgs/...

You can keep it really simple and simply place your heat blankets between two sheets of metal. If it helps, here's a description of my stack: http://www.happymonkeysnowboards.com/Mo ... ion#Layers

The Wayback Machine has been pretty hit-or-miss for me in terms of images, especially image links to other sites. But it is absolutely worth a shot if you can't find your old images! I did get a few from it when I was trying to fix-up my posts. Reliable, stable image links are possible, see my post ...

Re: photobucket

... but I have far too many pics that I've posted over the years to figure out where they are in the forum ... I did this part for you. See my post here and the accompanying spreadsheet: http://www.skibuilders.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=51027#51027 and https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1mp1G0A...

This is indeed a bummer. I've used imgur.com for posts on some other forums, and it works pretty well. For now... Nothing is free. Storage space and bandwidth cost money. Anything offering these things for free has a time limit, even if unstated. Sometimes it will end well (i.e., give you a chance t...

The pictures are the best part

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I've always felt that for this site that couldn't be more true. Often the pics are the most important part of our posts and journals. As has been noted recently, Photobucket is going away , so we're gonna have a bunch of broken image links scattered ...

... or if everybody is somewhere else in the net. Personally, I just find it a lot easier to keep up with the FB group than to come here, so I keep forgetting about this forum. It's rolled in with most of the other groups I'm in these days. I see a lot of people there from here as well: https://www...

You no longer have to download binaries and figure out how to use the command line. The latest version will always run for you in ...

Consider that a **tall** standard snowboard insert is only .325" (8.25mm). That would be a stiff board for any rider. Alpine race board inserts are .410" (10.4mm) or so; narrower boards, and designed to be stiff as all get out. Shoot for the 8mm range, unless you're 300lbs+ :)

Updated to v4.0.4. Many thanks to RegMeasures (not sure of his alias here) for adding partial wrap edge support to MonkeyCAM. It's great to have another contributor. See the sample ski def and output for an example; in this case it's a partial wrap on the tail of the sample ski. https://rawgit.com/m...

I'm glad you guys had a good time. I'm sorry I missed it. Honestly, I just completely spaced on it. I think I was doing yard work instead, and didn't remember until today. Pro move, I know.

I dded up looking at my calendar. I can't make the 3rd. I could do Saturday the second, or the following weekend. Or I can just miss it this time and catch you all next time. Sorry for the confusion.

For April I'm traveling 4/14-4/17 for sure, probably 4/9-4/10 as well. I'm never gone Saturdays and Sundays.
