I know you're not in the US, but search McMaster for direct mount strip brushes.

Hey guys, itís been a while since Iíve posted anything to the forum (or really read the forum much Sad) so I figured it was time for an update.

Iíve been playing with veneer a bit more lately. Bought a reasonable selection from Edensaw in the fall. I did a simple multi-piece layup on a snowboard, and Iím doing a more complicated one with arcs and some stain on a pair of skis.










I made a new mold form for a rockered tip for the skis weíre making. Havenít pressed them yet so I donít know how well it will work or not yet.




Iíve made a few updates to MonkeyWiki since last I posted. Iíll list the major ones here. If you want to seem them all hereís a recent changes query that will show everything for the last year: http://www.happymonkeysnowboards.com/mw/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&limit=500&days=400

I put up a page on my edge benders, with some details on a pair of nippers I modified over the summer: http://www.happymonkeysnowboards.com/MonkeyWiki/Edge_Benders




A page on the 4-way clamps I use on my cores: http://www.happymonkeysnowboards.com/MonkeyWiki/Four-way_Clamps




Iíve put up a page about weights and fiber fractions, with some info about how I weigh things and compute how much glass and epoxy are in the boards: http://www.happymonkeysnowboards.com/MonkeyWiki/Weights_and_fiber_fraction

Updated the page on epoxy with more info about mixing and quality control: http://www.happymonkeysnowboards.com/MonkeyWiki/Epoxy

Finally, I made a short video today about gluing edges. Iíve been wanting to start making videos like this for a while now, but just havenít been motivated. A combination of talking with some guys about exactly this topic last weekend and all the video editing work I did after my recent heli trip finally pushed me over the edge. You can find it on the page about edges ( http://www.happymonkeysnowboards.com/MonkeyWiki/Bases,_edges,_and_nose/tail_spacers ). Hereís a direct link, too: http://youtu.be/CztMsfW4v78

Iíll make more videos over timeÖ slowly, though, as is everything else I do in this respect Wink Iíd be interested in feedback on the video and suggests for future videos.

Finally, a little stoke video from the beginning of the month to round it all out: http://youtu.be/Sq60qrFnabE All the POV is from me. Iím still riding that red powder board I made back in 2007... I think itís time for a new one!

Hmm... anyone know how to embed video here??

Don't think you can embed video on phpbb. It is a feature of phpbb3

Nice work Mike ... well of course!!!

You might find this site has a number of helpful resources: http://www.netcomposites.com/tools. When it comes volume weight fractions people will need to remember to allow a certain percentage for waste - according to individual layup procedure.

I spied the mdf on the table next to the core - is this your solution to getting an even cure?

some great tips and useful info, as usual ! you're doing a great job with this wiki !
Cannot comment on the video as I don't have the sound at work :p but the images were fine. Compared to you I put a lot of superglue (qty per "drop"), I'll be more careful next time. Didn't noticed anything bad though even with "too-much glue"... no delam or anything even on 3-4 years old skis.

Quoted from an email from Trevor at Vectorply

"For hand lamination, the ideal fiber content (fiber weight fraction) is in the 50% to 60% range (50% to 40% resin), and for infusion/compression molding processes in the 65% to 73% range (35% to 27% resin)."

My buddy in a big time snowboard op r&d says 38-40% is what they try for.

Glad to see you're back Mike! Excellent info as usual. So the MDF next to the base with the holes in it... Is it a generic template for core/base cutting or a new bottom mold? Can you elaborate?
