I am really suprised to see this response. I have to say, this thing is pretty robust. It is made of 2" sq carbon steel tubing that is about .120" thick, and welded. There is also a third hinge in the middle, all 3 of which are welded on all 6 sides. Having seen a lot of different press designs over...

Oh man, I am hoping that it is just the way the pictures show it. I am pretty positive I got some good penetration on those welds, but I'll take another look at 'em before I get too far. I also have some more steel that I can use to add trusses if needed. My main thought process was around deflectio...

Moving to Portland. Anyone there??

Hey all! Been having to take a hiatus while I was on a temporary assignment for work, but about to be moving out to Portland, OR, so I am going to get everything started back up again. Was wondering if any of you are out in the PDX area? I am toying with the idea of setting up shop in a shared shop ...

I built the same press as the one on boardcrafter. Works great. See pictures below. http://i1293.photobucket.com/albums/b597/danesnow/2012-03-07_23-49-03_389_zps77d54d5b.jpg http://i1293.photobucket.com/albums/b597/danesnow/2012-02-25_17-03-07_348_zpsfc000e6f.jpg You have to make sure you use the la...

Thanks everyone! Jackson is insane right now...we got 15" last night and they opened up the tram today. Conditions are prime. The graphics I did through Chad at Coda. He did an awesome job, and super easy to work with. He just sublimates the base on clear Durasurf, so your standard UHMW plastic. The...

I use something called Oracal from US Cutters. Same thing, just a vynil application tape, but relatively cheap for a really large roll. I make snowboards though, so I needed more than 6" width...

Have you tried Coda?

Chad has been really helpful for me. I do small quantity orders and he has nailed my graphics every time. Great quality, at my door in about a week.

Give him a shout. He should be able to work with you...

Are you willing to ship this, or is it local pickup only? I'd love to see some pics if you don't mind posting or sending them...
