What I think of doing is:
1) Get 2 or 3 of sheets of wood sized 135x45cm
(2 or 3? How many mm? 3mm? What kind of wood? Where do I find it?)
2) Glue the sheets together, while drying use a 7x7cm square beam and the car to create a rocker
3) Cut a symmetric round/elliptic nose with a template and a saw and then sand the cut
4) Use fiberglass and epoxy at bottom side - Extra glass layers where the foil will mount
(Which epoxy? Which glass? How many layers? )
4.5) Wait to dry
5) Turn the bottom side down and pour extra epoxy at the rails - in the V formed between the dried fiberglass and the wood
5.5) Wait to dry
6) Do Steps 5 & 6 at the upper side
7) Use epoxy and salt at the upper side for grip
8 ) Drill 4x10mm holes for foil and fill with epoxy (using paper tape at the bottom to hold the epoxy)
9) Once the epoxy is dry, drill 6mm hole and use big washer on the upper side and nut at the bottom to hold the foil.
To be fair, it does not matter for your first project. Just normal white foam can work providing you wrap the foam nicely in glass/carbon etc. Sure, the epoxy might "eat" the foam, test it before to be sure.Zandman wrote: ↑Wed Oct 10, 2018 11:10 pm
A few more beginner questions:
Could I use eps or xps foarm instead of plywood with the same process?
(even creating the rocker by gluing 2 sheets?)
If I find foam blocks of 1m , can I glue them together to achive more length, e.g. 1.5 meter?
If I want to glass 2-3 layers, do I have to wait for the first to dry, or I can put all 3 clothes together?
I assume that for the foilplate I'd better insert a piece of wood in the place of the foam. Right?
