Forums DIY and Mods Splitting a board with basalt (no fibreglass)? Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) Author Posts March 20, 2011 at 1:37 am #574593 butson 1 Posts I’m looking to split my T Rice with “Horsepower” construction…apparently that means basalt has been used instead of fibreglass. As a first timer I’m still learning about the process, but one thing the tutorials don’t answer is if the basalt will present an issue when cutting the board in two. Anyone have any ideas on this? Thanks heaps. March 21, 2011 at 5:20 pm #638050 nearls 162 Posts As far as I know basalt shouldn’t present any issues different from cutting a board layed up with standard glass. Same goes on the safety though, dust mask, glasses, etc. April 21, 2011 at 4:53 am #638051 hoglord 202 Posts I split my Phoenix with golden fleece, basalt, and it had no issues at all. :bananas: :bananas: :bananas: Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
