    Vacuum bagging tutorial.

    Well, it's not exactly a tutorial, but is a great resource for making a vac-bag.

    I also found this:

    http://www.veneersupplies.com/catego...K__-__O/Maple/

    The prices seem fairly reasonable, but I do not know whether the veneers are acceptable for board building or not.

    Can anyone hook me up with a link for fiberglassing with a vac bag? I've been going through the forums and can't find it.

    Hello, I am wondering if someone still has that bolt hole truck pattern/template from brainfartalerts, if it's still available. i searched through the threads, but i keep running into dead links.

    Ok so im going to make my first board soon. I plan to use the roarockit vacumm press. looks like it will be the easiest for me. i want to build a stiff speed board. similar to a rayne avenger or the sayshun speed. I weigh about 180 about 6ft if height makes any difference. Im trying to figure out how many layers i should use.

    If you're using Roarockit I'm going to assume you bought the maple veneers with it. For a stiff speed board I would recommend 8-10 plies of 1/16" maple, but the number of layers depend on what material you are using and the length of board you are making. Also whether the board is going to be top-mounted or drop-through. My buddy just made a 7-ply maple drop-through deck with no reinforcement and its way too flexy and is cracking from the torsion. At your weight I'd go 8 plies if you want something a bit lively, 9 if you want real solid, and 10 if you want extra sturdy (and heavy).

    Same process as fiberglass. I have found that it goes a bit darker after you put it on. Also, fabric is more prone to wrinkles.

    GOOD IDEA


    Vacuum press your boards in a pressure chamber!!!!!!!

    (an old air compressor tank modified with a door and vacuum line for the bag)



    The more air and excess epoxy/glue you can press out of your materials; the stronger it will be.

    Just a little question on building a board with a big drop.

    How will I go about it because I have been using 1/4 BB with a 1/64 Maple veneer in the middle, they turned out fine with very little flex for me (110lbs) with a relativley good concave. I am thinking about using a vaccum press for this board though as I used a big, metal press for the other boards (my knowledge of woodworking machines is pretty much non existant haha) because it looks much easier in terms of building a jig aswell as cheaper.

    The main purpose of this board is a Long Distance Pusher so it's not a problem if the board has a little dampening flex, in fact that would be ideal. Although this will also mean the board has to be very low with a drop of 1.75"-2" being ideal (not a drop-though) my fear is that the layup I have used for my prevous boards will not be able to handle this extreme drop so what will be the easiest way round this?


    EDIT: Rough estimate of the specs:

    Drop: 2"
    Length: 40"
    WB: 32" (ish)
    Concave 1/2" Tub
    Width: 9"

    Thanks!

    This thread is for building tips and information....

    But to answer your questions.. you can't do a drop with 1/4" BB. At minimum you need to use 1/8" BB even better would be 1/16" Maple.
    The 1/64" veneer of maple in the center of your layup is a waste, it won't do anything for strength. Next time put it on the bottom so the grain can be showed off.

    Vacuum bagging is one of the best ways to press maple, you can do it other ways but have to be very careful. (you can press 1/8"BB with a vacuum bag into nice drops with the use of external clamps...)

    Thanks, really sorry about posting in the worng place, didn't want to post another thread.

    The 1/64th venner in the middle is to make the grains cross over and make the ammount of plies an even number.
    Anyway thanks for the Info, I guess I will have to find some 1/16th maple somewhere, will external clamps be needed for the maple or will the pressure from vaccum bagging be enough.

    Thanks again, and sorry for posting in the wrong place.

    No need for cross grain when using BB, BB consists of alternating layers of cross and long grain birch.

    1/16" Maple can be vacuum pressed fine without clamps, but for more extreme bends clamps are almost always required.

    Create a new thread when you start your project, we always like seeing new works. Good Luck!
