Nice design! What comes into my mind: edges/base not clean pressurized too fast like you said superglue bad Superglue can need long time to completely dry if the parameters are not good. Did you begin your layup after these 20 minutes? If your epoxy did start to cure before you applied pressure it c...

Thanks for the tips. I know its harakiri to do inserts without the binding on hand, but where i am now there are no skishops having this salomon.

Im doing M5 or M6 inserts like on snowboards during layup. You need to be quite precise to get a proper fit.

STH2 changed from the old 916 pattern. The Teton sheet says for the toe 42.5mm spacing of the frontmost screws and 31mm distance to the second row (40mm spacing) The latest powderguide sheet says 42mm spacing and 30mm distance to the second row (40mm spacing) And somehow the teton forum is strange, ...

The truth and the pity is ... it will hurt this forum for newbies. But that problem have a lot of sites without possibility of local upload.

I remember when i started building some years ago, i was reading trough this forum for weeks. Loads of good infos

Problem with fb group is you just see new postings and they more or less disappear in the timeline. Good to show off what your doing in that moment.

On a forum like this you can search for info, you have threads and so on. You can use it as a resource. Much better in my opinion.

Did you use the carbon only as top layer for deco?
