Re: Advice on glassing

Rails are epoxy and micro balloons. I was considering urethane but defaulted to what was comfortable.

Re: Advice on glassing

Thank you all for the input. I think the wood frame has a lot of strength but I will beef up the deck to compensate for the vulnerability of the foam sections. I’m planning on using Peters shop vac bagging technique. I’m not ready to shell out for a vacuum pump just yet. Here are some answers to a f...

Advice on glassing

See the photos below. The core is two ¼” 5 ply birch plywood sheets. In order to lighten it up I took ou...

Re: Pumps for vacuum bagging

Bill. It looks like I can pick up a used pump on ebay for roughly the same amount that I would invest in converting a fridge pump. Thanks for the input.

Pumps for vacuum bagging

I have read through the posts and didn’t see any threads on this. Can anyone comment on the use of a shop vac for vacuum bagging a kiteboard? I have a 2hp shop vac. I have done some research and have read some opinions saying that it will work but the vacuum force is far lower than a regular vacuum ...
