Hey guys, Neil here from Prospect snow and wake. We're offering build kits for skis, snowboards, and wakeboards.

At this point I've pressed better than a thousand boards myself. Kind of weird, but the graphic has started to fall into position. I'd imagine people that do it as a factory job get pretty good. To me it is all about "registration" to automatically line up and I'm pretty sure your idea doe...

Pretty sure that should all be covered with product liability insurance, but it is always of course inteligent to ask. The downside is that it is pretty expensive. When I started talking to ski reps about bindings they strongly suggested to have it. As far as new bindings go the binding companies of...

That arm looks like it is a power feed usually used on table saws.
I think this is how they rabbet their sidewalls. Neversummer has a similar setup.

Hey montucky, you are on the right track.
I would suggest not using steel plates. Use aluminum because it distributes heat over the whole platten. Also go thicker like 1/2 inch plates.

hot/cold spots, plate warp/distortion, uneven pressure, will all ruin your day.
