pretty sure the TC would come with exposed wire ends at the end opposite the sensor. You would need to crimp on terminal ends that can then be screwed onto the back of your PID where all the electrical inputs and outputs are. http://www.plumbersurplus.com/images/prod/5/Thomas--Betts-TV10-10F-rw-8654...

I think montucky madman on this forum has helped people out with cordura for fabric presses in the past.

That's a good link doughboy. Understand it much better now. Can I ask where you mount your thermocouple in the layup and physically how you do it. I saw some washer type bolt on probe ends and some self adhesive ends on that site, but permanently attaching it doesn't sound that practical. thanks Cou...

J type thermocouple is a flat style sensor Most people I think use an aluminium/steel layer in their layup below and above the ski/board. The thermocouple is mounted to this metal next to the ski so as to actually sense the temperature being conducted to the ski rather than the temperature of the bl...

http://on3pskis.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/November-132-1024x768.jpg From the ON3P site showing the notch in the base material that is needed to recess the edge. From what I have read it seems best to avoid terminating the edge on a sharp curvature as it has a tendency to try and pop away from ...

thanks ben. funny thing is the elongated hole idea was exactly what I was thinking of doing to be able to slide the top mould end pieces back and forward (maybe its just the obvious thing to do). I just hadn't come up with the u-bolt part. Glad you next pair came out well. If you have time for some ...

Hi Ben, I was wondering how you attached the top mould to your press frame. Is the plywood sheet screwed/bolted through the metal? Then how is the actual mould of 2x6s attached to the plywood? I have a few ideas of how to do this myself, but would be interested how others have done it. Thanks, hope ...

how does dye sub printing or silk screening onto the back of the topsheet or base material affect the bond with the fibre glass below?

I am thinking of using a rabbet router bit (used for recessing a right angled groove eg for the recess for glass in a picture frame) Work out the correct depth on scrap. Then cut my core to the desired shape and run the bearing along the edge of the core and the rabbet should make a nice groove at e...

thanks. that's what i thought, but always good to get confirmation. I am in Australia and have found a supplier http://www.colan.com.au/ that can provide 0/45/45 triaxial in 22oz. The roll is 52m long by 1270mm wide and weighs about 50kg. The price is about $9 per kilo ($450 per roll). I think I hav...

I have read that people suggest a 0.030" rabbet groove. This is 0.75mm right (3/4 of a millimetre)? Forgive my woodworking ignorance, but how do you achieve this depth? My trim router has a scale in millimetres that I use to adjust depth (it is a trim router), but I don't believe I could get accurat...

triaxial fibreglass fibre biases question

Hi guys Simple question I'm sure. I have talked to a fibreglass supplier and they can provide 22 ox triax glass in 2 varieties that are biased for warp or weft. One has 0 degree and +/- 45 degree fibres and the other has 90 degree and +/- 45 degree fibres. I think the 0, 45/45 type is the best one. ...
