New, new era 2019.

Life is life as said. My life has met a turning point, or a road divider(?).
My time at the swedish westcoast is over and I’m moving up the country. Back to my old hometown, Gävle. Taking over my dads house. Since I got my early retirement last year, there is nothing that holds me here. My children has moved out. The house is somehow on a dead end road(figuratively speaking). In other words, I need something new in my life.

This means that the skifactory is going with me. 🙂
Renting a space of a friend! Might even be better than now! Plus! Pics are coming…

Adding more heat

There is a common knowledge that heat will accelerate the hardening process of epoxy. Until now I have only been using heat from above. This has resulted in better builds. Anyhow, I haven’t been satisfied with the time not being THAT short. So I decided to add heat from underneath. This is a tricky bit since I’m using vacuum bagging. If using pneumatic presse one doesn’t have to take in considering sealing any air leakage…so to speak.

One simple way is to use silicone heat mat.
