    G10 backing plates, tapped, w/o nuts?

    Three times the time and money to install cleats and then designed in a known failure point , plastic threads. When all it would take are some SS washers and nuts on the back side. Reinvent the wheel and make it square only to find out it works better round after all.

    flexisander questions

    33" model weights 4.5 pounds way to heavy. their theory about the only the ends getting used and they want more contact area is all wrong unless you have the power to push that much sand paper across the surface while pushing up on the board. long boards help mark where to sand with shorter boards. I made the boards I use from laying up 2 thin plys of glass about 3-4 " wide and bond on two lengthwise stringers of 1" by 1/2" cedar or balsa. the paper almost weights more then the board. diagonal sanding with very course paper is the key, keeps the surface true and makes the paper in the center of the board sand almost as much as the ends

    Peel ply - unwaxed polyester resin

    not really new about 80 years old. laminating resin will not contain the wax but some surfboard and clear surface coating resin does contain the wax. if the surface cures hard then it contains the wax

    Peel ply - unwaxed polyester resin

    You might want to read up on why polyester resin is an air inhabited resin and why the surface of the resin does not cure unless wax is added to the resin or the resin is cured with no air in contact with the resin surface. Surfboard polyester finish coat resin contains wax so the surface will cure completely. Thousands of surfboard builders know this but I guess you don't

    table saws wtf

    I have a shop that only has 240V single phase and run the new to me Powermatic 12" 5 HP table saw that came with a 3 phase motor . we use a VFD that converted single phase to three phase 240volts. got the VFD used for $250. we also have a 1 hp belt sander and a flat lap both have a 3 phase motors running on a 110 Volt 1 phase to 220 Volt 3 phase VFD that cost less then $200. VFD's have made buying used machinery so mush easier and economical because you can use the three phase stuff almost any where now. https://www.automationdirect.com/adc/shopping/catalog/drives_-a-_soft_starters/ac_variable_frequency_drives_(vfd)/general_purpose/gs21-11p0?utm_source=msn cpc&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Shopping - Drives and Soft Starters&utm_adgroup=Drives and Soft Starters&msclkid=ca6ebe3b7d3c1b2e58efe1663f733193
