The old forums are (currently) unavailable.Does anyone have the link to Carl's glassing tutorial? I thought it was in the old forums but unfortunately I did not bookmark it. That is assuming the server it was on is still around.
If your wife does any sewing, make her really happy and buy one or two of the big cutting mats, and share them with her. They keep the rotary cutter blades sharp a long time!troj, Thanks! I purchased one of those cutters today. we'll see how it goes. Also, I won't use the CA.
My wife quilts, so like your wife, she already had a mat, but it was too small. So, I bought a larger mat, gave that to her, and took the small one for myself. When I need to cut fiberglass, I lay the two mats end-to-end, and it's wide enough for the full cut.My wife does do some sewing. I am going to wait until HL has a 40% off coupon and get a mat for us
For my fiberglass project, my wife had a mat from her photography scrap booking hobby that worked well. It was too short to go the full length I needed but I moved it and continued the cut. A bigger mat would have been nice.
It won't stick well, or for long.What do you fill with?
I don't have the lite filling epoxy so I was thinking of using water based Elmers wood putty.
Nope, but there's no reason it won't work.Have you used West Systems with Phenolic Microballoons?
How it is weight-wise depends on how much of the microballoons you mix in, likewise on ease of sanding.What do you think of West Systems and the microballoons?
- Will it be lighter that bondo?
- Will it be any easier to sand than bondo?
