Re: Hollow P-Tex

Hi Vinman, thanks for your reply. At first I didn´t want to believe what you wrote so I kept searching and cut the skis open at a few more places and I also took a closer look at the suction-hose that led to the vacuumpump. It was clogged with a little piece of fleece. So I think thats the reason wh...

Yesterday I laminated a Touringski. Vacuumpress, -0.9bar. Resin like always, HP-E110L. Cores with rabbet for the edges. Edges prebend to fit the mold in the shovelarea. No Tipspacer for the shovel. I made this ski for the third time, 1st with 2.5mm in tip, 2nd with 3mm and now 2.3mm. after pressing ...

Once I have seen a video of a guy hotglueing a longboardcore form woodstrips for vacuuminfusion. There was always a little gap between the strips so that the epoxy could flow in between. Maybe this is the way they do it in the industry? Just a few dots of hotglue, the rest is done by the epoxy?

So I have been busy lately. During the last winter I decided to built a powderski for telemarking. And a friend of mine got really hooked on moguls so we decided to give it a try and make a mogulski. https://abload.de/thumb/p1010597elsd6.jpg https://abload.de/thumb/p1010599v1srl.jpg https://abload.d...

No topsheet, just UV-stable epoxy.
I did two skis without topsheets, made both with SuperSap. It looks pretty nice with the core shining through the glasfibre even though it is not very durable. The second one had veneer just at the tip and the tail.

I am thinking about building an ecoski as well. I made a pair with biax flax and glass which I really liked. I also liked its dampness. But what about a ski with a full flax laminate? Will it be too damp? Earlybird writes about using carbonstrips. Core would be full ash.

I made a pair with flax biax and uni glass. It was a very smooth ride but heavy as mammoth wrote. The pressure of a vacuumsetup ist not high enough to get a good fibre-resin ratio.
Next pair will get glass triax and a thin layer Uni flax. I will take a closer look at the amount of resin I use.
