Just a guess, but I think it's air pressure. To get a more uniform press.

Or he is possibly injecting it with Nitrous oxide

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Very awesome! The ultimate Man project.

I had the same idea last year, did the research, printed the templates but haven't found the time to build the press and such...still would like to finish it sometime.

The hoses are how the pressure is applied, below is a better pic. When the hoses are flat there is no pressure, pump them up with compressed air and it applies pressure to the board.

I drew up the split last night. Can someone please measure the width of their large sparks?
