Magmafoil "Single Screw System"

Postby gmb13 » Sat Mar 14, 2015 1:40 am

Hi Guys,

For 2015 we have completely changed our T-Bar system.

The whole foil now comes in 3 Parts and is held together with only one screw. Its a super solid connection and super clean, and best of all, take less than 30 seconds to put together.

Check it out:

Smart thinking! Can you still trim it?

It's a neat version of this. I can see it becoming the standard way to do it.

Well done Gunnar,

I while working on my 2015 foils prototypes last summer, I did worked on something close to that but did not get a sturdy enough assembly to go ahead with it (a little play at the assembly was always there). it seems that your methods is good.

reminds me a lot the new Fone foil...

congrats

Thanks Renaud,

It took a lot of work and testing to get it to work as well as we wanted it to.

Thats why we are a bit late in releasing it. Well worth it in the end :-)

Gunnar - this is a masterpiece!
Dead simple and clean design - I really love it.
I draw a similar design as a proposal for one two manufacturers in the past but never got to an idea of one screw.
Who's idea exactly was it?
This is a way to follow.

The 3-piece foils with lengthwise screw/rod I know of:

Ronnie's link, the AFS-1 windfoil project from Bruno Andre was introduced during the Paris Boat show in Dec 2010.

The Fone project was presented early July 2014:

I have seen the F-one foil here in Cape Verde, and it has a similar system but the screw-rod goes from front piece to back piece, and is screwed in from the front. Very clever, very clean, definitely the way to go for simplicity i believe.

Cool w some developement!
