vacuum press + clamps for camber/rocker?

Post by skibumben »

anybody use a method similar to community skis for pressing skis?

seems like a simple way to press and easy to adjust camber/rocker without making tons of mdf molds.

i could use a sheet of steel or aluminum layed flat as a cassette base to vacuum press on to. and then clamp the cassette outside the vacuum against blocks to add camber and tip tail rise. assuming the metal sheet would flex in a uniform way when clamped for nice radius on the tips and tails.

anybody try something similar or have thoughts?
