Getting started on my first proper board (built heaps of plyboards over the years).
I'm thinking about using a PVC foam for the core, simply because it's easier to get hold of and cheaper than corecell. The site says the product is suitable for marine use and is water resistant. I'm thinking of ordering some 10mm sheets.
As for vacuum bagging, I'm currently working on finding the peel ply (although I have heard that you can find materials with similar properties for a fraction of the price - coat lining etc...) and also tracking down suitable plastic. What stuff should I be using? I'm thinking the most important property of the outer plastic is just airtightness, right?
I found this site: http://www.roarockit.com/rc_wood.php
Has anyone had any experience with these? I would have to order a custom size, but they still look pretty effective.
I'll be using a silk sheet in the board layup for graphics, although still considering buying some PBT for the next one...
epoxy siderails, 18oz of fibreglass cloth...
I've read through most of the stuff on this forum... any final words of wisdom before I take the plunge and start killing my braincells with resin
