The 48hour skis

Let’s hope a new “era” has begun… I have got the hot box to reach 60°C and keep it over time. The idea is to do a regular build/layup and the postcure for 24h in the hotbox. Cut out and varnish directly after. Good or bad…the future will tell! 🙂

So..new build, the new “Wolverine 80″ slightly changed the original”Wolverine”. Front rocker and rounded tail. Later it will be a “Wolverine 95”. This will introduce the 95mm waist to the Wolverine family. 🙂

First, a regular build/layup session. 5h in the press with around 80-90°C heat. Cool of for about 15min and then placed in the hot box at 60°C for 24h. According to the epoxi manufacturer this should provide a full cured construction. Let’s hope for it…

5:37 in the morning, 31 hours after start

…and now the 48 hours are passed. Three layers of varnish. And ready for the slopes!

But…they are not tuned yet…

    Is the sidewalling jig to keep camber and rocker flat?

      Yes. It’s the simple answer. 🙂 But I will change the material, both on table and jig, to aluminium(I think..) to get a more rigid and accurate surface between the two.
