One thing to note about K-Clips on DIY splitboards is they have a tendency to pull the two board halts together so tightly that it "hulls" the base of the board. To get it right you have to make sure the clips are installed in PERFECT location. My DIY has K-Clips that were installed professionally and even so it hulls the base slightly. I'm not saying to stay away from them, just FYI.
Cool, thanks for the tip! Are the k-clips really that much better that it is worth the risk of bowing the board? I know that I will have no issue with the DIY kit, it make take me longer than some people, but I'll get her done. I just don't want to do all the work and then on like a small piece to the puzzle turn my split into a trough.
