October 9, 2011 at 1:31 am #644752 AndyT 47 PostsTidy edge work. Is that a dremel blade you used for the channel? October 9, 2011 at 4:46 am #644753 vapor 350 PostsYes it is. The burr has cutting edges on both surfaces. There is a technique that i developed as the rpm is too fast for the blade,you have to take successive cuts as well as play with the on off button to keep the speed right October 10, 2011 at 3:05 am #644751 PJB 31 PostsRockler.com has an auxilary speed control that you could plug your router into and slow it down.

October 12, 2011 at 4:20 am #644755 libtechsplit 198 Postsawesome – another board VAPORISED 😆 . BTW i have about a hundred 8 inch long chunks of 3 inch round delrin if you can think of anything to do with them. theyre not quite wide enuf to make regular pucks out of. October 13, 2011 at 1:50 am #644756 vapor 350 PostsHey libtech. Soo close!,I machine the pucks to 3.140. Delrin is abit pricey so i’ll keep it in mind. Hopefully i’ll get these done up before the snow flys(still have a couple up for grabs but they can stay in reserve for now)Give me a hout when it gets deep enough and will do some touring. October 14, 2011 at 2:55 am #644757 InTheMountains 216 PostsNice work on the overlapping pucks as well. gary October 15, 2011 at 5:56 am #644758 libtechsplit 198 Postswill do. i was thinking with that delrin that i could mill discs off and make hooks out of them… thats it so far. to make delrin pucks we’ d have to have access to a brake to make custom sliders… October 16, 2011 at 2:28 pm #644759 vapor 350 PostsThanks gary. Having the pucks in one piece when assenbling really help with the fitup. using parts themselves to loacate and drill. It can be done faster with drill jigs and ill get around to it but this way has it fitup tight. October 19, 2011 at 4:16 am #644760 InTheMountains 216 Postsyou’ll also like how the board stiffens up a bit torsionally…totally reduces that chatter when on a icy windswept slope. Which, btw, is what the kootenay’s are full of… 🙂 gary November 12, 2011 at 12:18 am #644761 vapor 350 PostsThought i get a picture of them all together before i start handing them off ,the st on the end is mine so im going to leave that to last. November 13, 2011 at 1:09 am #644762 Huck Pitueee 145 PostsNice. You must have it down to a science. Although each split job isn’t the same have you figured your hours to do one? I’m thinking 130.00 bucks would be as low as I could go for a stranger. November 13, 2011 at 10:46 pm #644763 vapor 350 PostsRight now it takes about 2.5 hours to put in the inner edges. everything else has been done when i had time so its hard to quantify how much time it takes. I have gotten offers to do work for people and will but actually put this content up so people can learn from it and do it themselves…….that said not everybody has a digital readout mill at thier fingertips. For me the enjoyment comes from developing that improves on whats available, sometimes its not economicaly viable but still fun to do.
