I take the shortcut sometimes. Cleaning grind with 60-80, then stone. Need more passes with the stone but i dont have to change the belt. And i didnt see any difference.

Glue it down with hotglue when going trough the planer, works like a charm.

If you want to glue a outside wood stringer you dont need to get it off. You leave it, laminate and cut it off when finished / when you are cutting the outline

Feedback on my old loctite. It was holding strong and the first two boards pressed fine.

Like said its min. 2 years old, storage was in the workshop (10-29 deg C during winter/summer) and the bottle i used up was opened last season!

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...

The problem is you can never rely that links will be working tomorrow. Only solution is to use a forum where upload of pictures is possible. Its sad to see skibuilders forum going down more and more and people wandering to fb. Not that i dont like fb but for our use a forum is much more better then ...

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, ...
