I have it weak lateral under the seat, some more work. Check out my "fork you" thread for more advanced jig fixtures. Recumbent frames, cargo frames, fat tire frames & frt forks and rear stays.

Thru it back in the jig fixture. Gotta make some more cf sq tubes, iam out! Need some for this and my quad velo.

I ride the shop-mule below for a over 2 years, love it. Gonna convert this metal frame to cf. Take me a while to make a few more cf tubes. Speedy with my airbladder mold that stays up 20 hours, then i hold vaccum to pull latex tube out which has mclube release on it.

That's weird. Anyway, I hope you didn't build that over the shoulder frame tube. They are quite dangerous in a crash.

Have you been able to ride your low racer yet or did you decide to abandon it?

Photobucket is down:

Worked much more on the fence for two part mold of the front fender plug. Takes me so long, about 8 hours to finish & fix that fence. Now i will wax the plug 7 times with TR, reset fence and make the first side of the mold which is easy.

I learned alot from this video and buy from these UK people.

————————————————-
Did switch to lauan wood ($7.48 Home Depot) on larger velomobile rear cowling plug to make the plug “fence” instead of using polycarbonate.The youtube above technique and the lauan wood made it easy. Nice to have these two plugs ready to make the split molds/tools from them.

Left side of split fender mold is complete and curing. Black epoxy tooling gelcoat and carbon fiber twill 11oz. Used compositeenvisions.com medium cure speed epoxy run through michaelenginneering.com pump.

20”



Pop off fence tomorrow night and clean & wax that side ready for a finished 2 part mold.

Finally after months of casual work on 20” full fender well mold i am prepping. Will use these molds to complete my rear components that make my unibody a 4 wheeler (rear wheel wells).

Black epoxy tooling gelcoat and carbon and soric over tooling gel. I always keep learning tips and tricks for plugs and molds.

Before frekote l buffed split mold with wizard compounds and my flex german made hand buffer. Dont be home without it.

LETS NOT FORGET DURATEC PRODUCTS/YOUTUBE , compositeenvisions.com, and rev-chem in Southern California.

U see the yellow can of frekote product.
1) frekote cleaner gallon size
2) frekote sealer 4 coats
3) frekote release 4 coats
4) 7 coats of the great TR mold release wax (ebay) over frekote.



Brevity and misspelling rampant (new eye lens couple weeks ago)

Other full canopy front windshield (made using oven and mold) in pcs above. This one below holds 3 straight windows. 1/16th thick, just cut and install.


Above photo is a plug to make the mold.



Later this year i will use the top in photo below to make a plug:
