Ditto. I do a pocket the cut most the meat off and then finish with parallel. You can do some clever stuff, by adjusting height values. I've done some more complex parts too like a guitar neck and a hatchet handle.

Found a couple ST600s

hey guys, i've been chasing some of the sports authority grinders around. For the most part, wintersteiger bought them all back, but i did find two available in the NYC area. Not sure if anyone is down that way, but i talked to a guy that was responsible for liquidating the stores, and he said they ...

Does this technique not make everyone that reads this cringe? Like... name one material in a cured ski that you want to deform permanently? Sounds like they're breaking the damn thing. I must be missing something... I have it from a source that the infinite ride thing was developed as a lifetime tes...

One thing I am not sure about is how far apart they should be. E.g. what is the standard length of the highest area of the core on ski's or snowboard.
Dude. Calipers....ski shop... measure yourself some thickness profiles of skis you like.

^Ditto.

Might want to pull them out of the press and set on their side to let them cool to shape without your mold or gravity acting on them.

Re: Sidewall bevel tricks and tips.

Curious to see how you all are making your sidewall bevels. As for me right now I have a belt sander that can be angled and been setting it to 20 degrees and slowly working away the sidewalls until they look good to the eye. The trick with my system is just like any normal sanding start with a heav...

Metal plates are also good variant. I thought about them but they seem to me way heavier then L profile. Yes. You are right. Look up moment of inertia for beam bending. A lot of good advice for you here though. Generally, sealing surfaces you want to be clean, flat, and have a lot of clamping force...

SOLD - 6" belt and stone Ski Tuner $250

This is setup old school. Running into a 220V socket currently. Belt is 6in. I think the stone is just shy of that. She runs, and selling for a friend. Needs to go quickly since the space its in is getting bought since the shop is closing down. This is in Milford NH. I'd keep her but I'm a snowboard...

Got it, you're talking about impact resistance, and you have my attention! And your suggesting using products like these?: http://www.uspoly.com/laneappf.html Any idea what these actually are? Uralane = urethane based? Would we still need a UV protective layer on top? I'm not (yet) convinced that th...

Too busy to post up my coupon results lately. Here's a sexy board though, same artwork just done on veneer and clear coated. Cherry sidewalls go so well with it, didn't mean for that to happen. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/t445/FnKFabrications/DSCN7841_zpseb17b292.jpg http://i1060.photobucket...
