So our season is ending, maybe one more little powder dump before I hang up by boots and start cutting up my board. I think I have the general idea from this thread but I wanted to ask a few things.
1) When you cut back the core do you cut at a 45 degree angle from above and below so as to create a space for the urythene filler?
2) How far back do you cut? I am thinking 1cm or so is enough.
3) Did you fill the gap with the exposed core in sections?
I am thinking using masking tape and just letting the filler sit due to gravity which will mean rotating the board and doing the entire cut edge in maybe 3 sections.
4) How much of a gap do you leave between the cut edge and the inserts.
Other than that it seems pretty straight forward and since I am loving my proto so much I am 100% sold on making the Volkl a 100% deep powder monster swallowtail.
I will post up a few shots when I have a design for the swallow tail shape. Probably be similar to yours as it maximises straight edges which are easier to cut cleanly and keeps the tips thick and so strong.
Of course it won't be identical.
If mine comes out well my buddy may do his too.
Just pure fun making things
