If you were a buyer, would you buy a board with no rails? :)

I always put myself into the buyers shoes.

Sorry for posting links to my other forums. It is quite time consuming to write the same thing all over the Net.

Cheers.

NO Dude, don't apologize for that ; it's Cool of Ya to give us all that info !!

And i plan to use the info, by sticking with Epoxy rails until you come up with
something Better !!
Mean-while : (back to that Other project) ; i'm getting Tired of having Failures
on that one as well. It's ALL a learning curve, it seems ?

Cheers for that.

It is a bit trial and error. I will run some test with bonding to epoxy this week. Hopefully.
