Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

I do not like the paipos without fins, nor the bodyboard, I hate the lateral displacements and skids The side slipping you described might be due to the board being quite large. If you try a finless board that is narrower and longer you will see that the inside rail actually behaves like a fin as l...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

I have read this link carefully, I have drawn the paipo I had thought to 19. I prefer 18 to work better in vertical wind waves ,,, so I modified the plan to this measure, has the previous paipo's construction and a pod of Fiberglass reinforcement since I'm going to get into waves of 2m and I do not ...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

first day of test. When I got into the water, I had problems with the minimum flotation of the wooden paipo, I have never had anything like that. I've gotten used to it, but I miss something more floating. Frankenboogie has good ideas, I'm thinking about 1 inch of eva when I have taken waves it has ...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

Communication even between English speakers can be difficult. I've had people in NZ, Canada and the US not be able to understand me. It's often helpful to translate something and then translate it back into the original language and see if it makes sense. Rod and I have done a couple of bi-lingual ...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

I have seen this carbon fiber. laminated directly with the hotcoat: carbon fiber + polyester + paraffin, I think I can lighten the weight.

Vector Net XP 227 - 1/2" Diamond Pattern (50cm)

I do not know if with this carbon cloth I will have such good results compared to 6oz fiberglass

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

GeoffreyLevens Bob, I think he meant that it needed glass because he cut it out so that the grain runs across the width of the board to increase flex; but that weakens it considerably so--glass. I really like the look of the flex in the video/FB link. Nice and springy. perfect, that's what I wanted ...

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

to get the rocker and that flex I have to cut the wood in contraction direction to the feed, if I do not give fiberglass part by just touching it,

Re: paulownia + polyester+ fiberglass: rocker and flex

it's already finished, I'm a little afraid of the weight, it's been 4kg counting the fins and everything. Will it float enough? I have to find a way to lighten

You can remove the fiberglass and resin and paste a thin sheet of melamine, synthetic wood imitation veneer and many colors to make furniture

Re: Frankenboogie Mk. III

At the time of design I was confused in the orientation of the veins of the wood to make it look more beautiful.   but thanks to this failure, I already have the first idea   all the alaias and paipos I have seen have the longitudinal vein, this gives rigidity and flex in thin boards, but what happe...

Re: Frankenboogie Mk. III

I would like to rescue these ideas for me. I can buy paulownia boards in 15, 18 and 22mm, the 18 and 22mm boards allow me to put fcs fusion plugs, I want my paipos with fins. The weight of the paipo that has been designed in 18mm thickness is 2.5kg in 22mm it has 3kg. it's the good thing about 3d bu...

The plastics have not stuck well. Neither with the tail nor with epoxy. At least with epoxy it was hard. But nothing reliable. The padding that has a plastic has not absorbed resin that was the idea he had. Cork Curious only Cork with xps and epoxy has been brutal. It sticks incredible but easy part...

First idea I can not can stick the thin plastic with glue. the glue leaves a lot of lumps and it shows in the plastic. Any idea how to apply this contact queue without lumps?
